Coffee and that Visa Nightmare…

I am having an extra cup of coffee today and it is really good. It hits the spot after the week that I have had. To sum the week up in a short post of text. Well – Russia just changed the visa rules again and they had just spouted and touted them as being much better than in the past. Life was to be better they said. I had my doubts and kept my mouth shut until I experienced them this visa trip… 🙂

Guess what? Russia succeeded in destroying any semblance of reality that they had in a visa program. After several years of good visa runs. I have now had one of my worst times getting a visa that I ever had. I was not alone in this wonderful escapade that Russia calls a better visa situation…

Nine of us tried to get a visa this week that I know of. I got one but have to wait two weeks. A South Korean man got turned down. Another American got turned down. A person from Britain got turned down. So on and so on and so on. We all have been getting visas for years from this consulate and all of a sudden, “Wham Bam Thank You Mama…”

So I have to smile and enjoy what comes my way. I will be in Kiev until at least the 13th of May. (Maybe longer.) Looks like Sveta will try to take a vacation and her I will trip the lights fantastic in Kiev Ukraine. That is alright with me, because anywhere with Sveta is like heaven…

So I have to make this short today. I am posting from my cell phone and it is not that easy for long winded posts. I will be writing a full post of details when I get back and explain what the new rules are… 🙂

Be looking for more updates in the next few days…

That is really why I love Russia! It just plain is stupid at times…

Windows to Russia!
