how the world sees america

The Visa to India Came Through!

It’s quite a relief! I’m shoving off at 9:30pm UK time tomorrow night via Air Emirates…Bracing myself for the heat.

And, yes, I know I'm lucky to be American and to have this sorted out with relative ease. If I was Iranian or Ethiopian I imagine it would be a thousand times more difficult. And I will certainly check out the U.S. embassy in India, a place that holds a great deal of responsibility for me being born American at all...
