I Wish the Church was More Like a Museum
Yesterday, my wife and a friend of ours headed into New York to visit the Chinese consulate. If you have not experienced the efficiency, warmth, and clarity of dealing with the Chinese bureaucracy then you are the richer for it. However, shocking to us, the consulate seems to have reformed itself a bit. Rather than the 8 or more hours it can take simply to get to the window (and then be rejected for a visa) we were in and out (and approved) in about an hour.
