I visited the French Consulate in San Francisco yesterday to get my visa. I couldn’t get my visa until I had an airplane ticket to Paris. Yep, I couldn’t get an indefinite work visa until I had a plane ticket to Paris. I went to book the ticket quickly, Yahoo! will pay for a one-way ticket, and guess what… The one-way ticket wouldn’t get approved until I had a visa.
You can’t win for trying. I’m heading to London this week and I’ll have to take up the chore when I get back.
