Conversation between Chuy and I about how we always find nice people to help us out in Paris even though the parisians have the reputation to be rude people.
Chuy: " I wonder what they see in us?
Me: Pity? "

Passport story, part 2:
Pictures are always needed to renew a passport and with the new security features on the passports, they have to be a certain way, right? When we went to take his pictures, the photos came out with a dark grey background. We told the lady, the background was too dark for his passport and the lady told us it was in conformity with the law and she added that is it was not fine, she will give us the money back. So when we went home, Chuy called back the ambassady ( understand consulate ) where he's been told again he needed a white background! So he called another picture place and the guy asked: is it for an american passport? Nope, mexican but it did exist !!! So we went there and this morning, we went to the first place to try to get our money back. Of course, the guy didn't want, saying once the pictures were taken, they never give the money back. He said, the pictures are what it's needed for here and he doesn't know whay is needed for a chinese passport! Chinese? Excuse me, I'm not chinese: I'm mexican! replied Chuy !!! It's not the first time Chuy is mistaken for a chinese ... A blue eyes chinese must be pretty rare though ... Anyway, he pointed to the lady who was listenning silently and she had to admit that she had told him he could get a refund. He did get his money back !!! (and he almost didn't believe me when I told him "good luck for this fight" before he went there !!! )
