I pay for my WiFi by having it deducted automatically from a bank account. This morning I recharged that account. After entering the bank I had to wait 35 minutes for a teller. Once at a window I had to produce my passport and sign two pieces of paper. The transaction took 8 minutes. All of this was in order to make a small cash deposit into an existing account. The total time from the time I left until I returned was nearly 2 hours.
God knows what would be involved if I tried to deposit a check drawn on a US bank or anything even slightly complicated.
When I left the house this morning it was cool and cloudy, but not raining. When I exited the bank it had begun to rain. Now it is 14:00 and it is still raining. I have a bad case of cabin fever.
When I got home I discovered my glasses missing. Fortunately I have 2 pairs of backups. I wasn’t real happy with those glasses for several reasons. If they’re gone, it’s no big loss.
I am scheduled to watch soccer again tonight with my neighbor. Might try to talk him into going out somewhere it watch it instead.
Talked my neighbors into watching the game in a small cafe close by. Just got home. It is not raining.
