Legal, Buzzards, Magpies, Frost

It's damned hard for a foreigner to complete the annual paperwork to get permission to live and work in this country. They give you 60 days each year to do what takes up to 100 days to drive through the inefficient bureaucracy here. And if you're late, that's your problem, not theirs. That's all I'll say here on that matter.

The two buzzards were circling high over the building when I returned from the visa office. A beautiful hoar frost was on the woods. One tree was full of squabbling magpies.
