I’ve got a golden ticket, I’ve got a golden ticket!
My Consulate contact person got back to me and sent this wonderful document, which is included below. I like to think of it as my golden ticket which will magically encourage the police officers to help me out when I go to the police station in a few days. It clearly explains what I need and that the US Consulate has assigned the task of recording my fingerprints to them. Let’s just hope a kind poliziotto will have the heart to help a girl out.
This little piece of paper makes me feel like Charlie from the classic Roald Dahl book and film version starring Gene Wilder, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You know the scene where Charlie and Grandpa Joe sing and dance, dreaming about what they’ve won? Well, I guess I’m not quite that exstatic, but my ticket should give me a chance to start my adventure.
