Visa Hell!

We have just returned from our latest trip to the Immigration Dept. in Bangkok. Golly gee, what fun! They seem to have a never ending supply of reasons to make you come back in a month so tghey can charge you yet another 1900 baht fee for some bullshit. This time they are going to have the local police check our address, and make sure i really live here. They also want a few photos of Roong and i at home. This also gives them time to check to make sure that i have the 400,000 baht in the bank that they require. All they would have to do is call the bank and check this blog, but then they don't get their fee. I understand that their Gov. needs to survive too, but at least the angry monkeys had a sign to warn you about it all. The photos are of my lovely wife on the bus ride back.
