Not a lot to report today really. Spent the day in the library doing more of the same. Also got to live chat online with our friends Jamie & Steph, which was great. It was nice to have some good conversation with nice people after the events of the last few days. We even got to see their friendly faces using our webcams. That really cheered us up.


Our cheer was short-lived when Neil got through to the DMV on the phone to be finally told that our documents had been processed in the normal snail-speed way rather than the express service that we had paid extra for. They tried to console him with the fact that they would send a refund cheque for the extra amount we had paid. Little consolation when it’s an American cheque in dollars that needs to be drawn on an American bank account that we don’t have!


Our misery was compounded when we returned to the Chinese restaurant in the evening. Despite having the same number of dishes as last night at roughly the same cost, our bill was a third more expensive. When we queried it, not only had they tried to charge us for double drinks, but they also tried claiming that it was more to eat in, even though it didn’t say that anywhere on the menu and they hadn’t charged us extra the night before. We hate people trying to take advantage! So despite the fact that the food was fantastic, we won’t be going back tomorrow night!
