One Afternoon in Bangkok

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

A reader updates a story from earlier this week:

A later version of the same story included a
response from the embassy. They say on that day they had technical problems
making photos and were saving the equipment only for those in desperate need
while those who were able to pay for photos were asked to get them
elsewhere. Does not sound totally unreasonable to me, especially considering
that they must have also been very busy issuing a huge number of new
passports, and they could not outsource THAT to some local street vendor (at
least I hope they did not).
