Getting a Visa...

Getting a Visa can be a pain. Well, its not really anyone's fault. I need a "letter of invitation" from my friend in Amsterdam. He isn't a citizen there, just a student with a residence permit. Apparently, the powers that be were reluctant to legalise the letter.

However, they did finally do the needful last week but my friend only sent it over by regular post. It should be here now (fingers crossed) except that today is a National Holiday in India (on account of our 60th Independence Day).

So I bought the flight tickets (and how they pinched) almost 2 months back but have not even APPLIED for a visa yet. There is a month left and thats more than enough in most cases but I also just found out that KLM does not let people cancel/change their flights. I don't see how thats possible but hey! besides the fact that I want to go it looks like I HAVE to go!

Damn red tape... How we hates it.
