Tbilisi 9th May 2018
We were full of trepidation as we headed down to the Chinese Embassy in Tbilisi this morning. Memories of waiting for exam results; finding out whether you had passed your driving test; whether you had won first prize for your lemon curd in the Village Show- memories came flooding back of other anxious moments throughout our lives.
The queue was quiet and no one looking one another in the eye. The door popped open and there was the smiling Mr Tomorrow Tomorrow the security guard so called because when we first asked him when the consular office was open he didn’t know how to say in English, the day after tomorrow and just said, tomorrow tomorrow. He is a big man and very smiley anyway so when he looked at us and beckoned us in we didn’t know if he was imparting good news or trying to soften the blow.
Thank you to the lovely staff in the Chinese Embassy in Tbilisi. You have made us very happy !
We’re on our way!
