It's a jungle out there


That's how I feel, having spent the most of my day at the Greek Consulate in London's Holland Park. The bureaucracy, authority and sense of self-importance that made their service (that's what it is meant to be, a service to Greeks abroad and non-Greeks wanting to travel to Greece) a tasteless exercise in how to get 4 people do the work of one. The endless forms and stamping. Stamping forms is turning into a sport of some kind, and I do predict that if modern Greeks had their way, it would make it into the next Olympic games. Anyway, I digress, forgive me, I am still upset it seems.

The theme today is jungle, inspired by my recent experience above. Be warned, the monkeys are on the loose...
