Yes, I now hold two American passports. Kinda neat. Had a weird day at the US Embassy, which had visitors evacuated to a nearby park or something. It was actually harder to get out of the place than to get in to pick up my passport. Otherwise, it was a sunny day in London. I wish I had the dough to do some exploring but I settled for a walk through St. James park and a lunch of sandwiches I made from groceries I bought at Tesco.
Some disappointing travel news, I may have to give up on going to Iran. Seems that the only way to do it is to have a hired guide with me everyday at a cost of $110/day. Not in the budget. Oh, and there's the whole issue of them detaining American citizens and the US moving warships into the Persian Gulf. Why can't we all just get along like good little countries?
I'm going to have to make some major adjustments to my travel plans in late July. Maybe I'll throw some more Africa and Eastern Europe into the mix. Right now, I'm trying to figure out how to get back to Paris. Miss ya Val! I may you as early as Thursday.
