So I asked myself after making that discovery, "Now what?" I saw two options: go anyway or make a new appointment. As an optimist, I went anyway (it’s not like I didn’t have all of the papers freshly prepared). After an hour wait, the nice gentleman advised me to make a new appointment. It did however give me a chance to ask if I was going to get into trouble. To confirm that I was still golden all he did was confirm that I would be able to set an appointment.
I didn’t hesitate and found a cyber cafe in the neighborhood. I took the first available appointment, which was 10 weeks off. I imagine that the busy season is just starting, because the first delay was only 5 weeks. But, the fact that they have a 5 week delay even in the low season implies to me that they are a fair bit understaffed.
