Day 270: The Saga of My Aussie Visa and My Aversion to Waiting

What the hell are you doing?!

I don’t know! I just really don’t know what I’m doing back here in Kaz-Stan, or Central Asia for that matter. When I booked a month for home it was just so cost-effective to get a round-trip ticket that I couldn’t pass it up.
