East is East once you know where West is

I'm in downtown Seattle waiting for my passport to have a new visa stamp, a Canadian visa stamp! While asking for directions to the nearest coffee shop, I had an epiphany of sorts that will help me determine North from South, East from West whilst downtown. West points towards the water (Puget Sound) - aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh! And who taught me this - the lady in the Canadian Consular office. She so cracked up while giving me directions when I said, "You know... I'm Indian. Do you think I can tell East from West?"

There is nothing more humorous than shameless self deprecation...

While I'm talking about the Canadian consulate I must say, the receptionist is amiable, jovial and attractive. I was pulling her leg within 2 minutes ;)


  1. That's not actually my title, but I'll take the compliments nonetheless!

  2. I know exactly what you mean ... I have been to their Seattle Consulate recently, and one of the girls who does the visas is a total hottie!

  3. "That's not actually my title, but I'll take the compliments nonetheless!"

    What title are you talking about? I'm a little confused - who is this? :)
