Outside the American embassy in Beijing many families of hopeful applicants wait for news. I visited the embassy to find out about getting Apple a visa for the year I need to return in order to finish school. Unfortunately I learned that it would be easier, to get Apple a visa to accompany me back to America while I finished school, if I was not an American. "Sorry, you fall through the cracks," the consul officer informed me. Perhaps I should ask Governor Jeb Bush what he did to get his wife into the country after he met her on a study abroad program in Mexico.
Aftrerwards to cheer myself up I did a little redecorating in our hotel room.
