Fun Facts from the Russian Consulate

This morning, Jodi and I drove up to one of the four Russian Federation Consulates in the United States, conveniently located here in San Francisco. It was my day to hand in my visa application and hope I did all the paperwork correctly. It was a beautiful day, and from other people’s experiences I expected a short, efficient process.

The most memorable part of the short visit to the consulate was the sign right above the visa application service window. It read, “Please keep you voices quiet. Did you know that by being quiet, you can get to the window faster?”

That was a very satisfying, and most Russian, way to begin what otherwise might have been a normal Thursday.
