We took a trip to the American embassy today to get a new passport for M. We have to renew our visas/residency permits shortly and his passport will expire before the new visas will. Anyway, I was amused today because every time we go, we see the same characters, although not the same people. Here's what we see: someone replacing a stolen passport (apparently they replace about 600 American passports a year in Prague -- all tourists beware), someone getting documents for a new baby, someone getting documents for a foreign spouse (or fiancee), someone getting a passport renewal. And we saw all of them today! Funniest thing about the embassy? My kids go crazy over the drinking fountain. While it's probably not the only one in the city, it's the only one I've seen.
