Re: British Embassy Warsaw

"I was going to start a thread on the British Embassy here, who have the reputation of being as much use as a chocolate fireguard. sometimes I think that if a British Citizen was bleeding to death on their steps, all they'd do is to phone the Polish foreign office to get the blood cleaned up. Eventually."

The place has always been empty every time I've visited. The most interesting thing about it is the notice board announcing marriages .

Re: British Embassy Warsaw

I had to go there to get a new passport for my trip to Vegas (ner ner ner!) in January. It was uncharacteristically empty for me - I always remember it being heaving.

The best part was the search carried out by the bored teenager on the door. I went in, gave my application and then had to go up to the 5th floor to the cash machine. When I came back down again, he let me go straight back in, oblivious to the fact that I could have left enough semtex upstairs to send him to meet his sister in Bradford without having to pay the airfare.

I love Warsaw, though. I even visited Marks and Sparks as a tip of the hat to Varsovian, even though he didn't want to go out for a beer with me.

Re: British Embassy Warsaw

I'll also need to get my passport changed at some point. Having a non-machine readable passport is a complete pain in the arse.
