Got up at 6AM, started a journey that would span 750 km over 10,5 hours. I was driving for 7 of those hours (yes, I have a heavy right foot). -N- and I spent almost exactly 1 (one) hour at the offices of the Migration Board, so one of their officers could ask -N- questions in regards to his mother and younger siblings who have applied for visas to Sweden.
You’d think this could be accomplished in an easier manner – such as for instance via Skype or a video-link – with a Notary Public present who could attest to our identities.
-N- deserves a bouquet for keeping his composure until the very last question. I want one for avoiding any mishaps (other dumb drivers, road crews and stray reindeer – not necessarily in that order.)
