Geneva

Pulling Strings

F’s father knows the Swiss ambassador to his country so, naturally, he sets up a meeting with him to discuss my visa options (no big deal). Not only does he go meet with this ambassador but he also brings another ambassador friend with him to the meeting (I also know two different ambassadors – Don’t you?). But, wait – it gets better.

The Swiss ambassador, the ambassador friend, and F’s dad are sitting in a conference room discussing my options but the Swiss visa/cantonal system is so convoluted that they feel the need to call in some other “experts.” Next thing you know, 8 different consulate officials are sitting in a room discussing – yes – my chances of securing a Swiss visa.

What is my life? Haha. F’s dad going this much out of his way shows that I’m officially family.
