PSB has my passport, and who knows what their policy is?
It will require global coordination to resolve this stalemate, which won't happen anytime soon..
We could be here longer than we care to imagine..

I have overstayed my visa by 11 months, plus my passport expired. I do have a residency permit, though.
PSB said, Go Home, We will phone you.. That was 3 weeks ago.

Keep calm and carry on..

Today, 22-07, the US ordered the closure of the Chinese embassy at Houston Texas..
Will counter-sanctions against the US include travel bans?

Anything seems likely, and travellers will only be collateral damage in this american act of craziness..

Off topic: I was fortunate to have visited the cemetery of Rachel's namesake; Ernest "Papa" Hemingway, at Ketchum Idaho. Far off the beaten track; a winter ski resort area, it was worth the detour, for those with a literary inclination..

He lies alongside wife Mary, with a slender evergreen at the head of both graves, which were simple slabs of dark granite; about 8 feet (2 & 1/2 M) long.. Visitors had left little trinkets, coins, etc, at the foot of the graves; otherwise, no magic-markings or signs of desecration in this quiet and desolate location.. Other Hemingway graves were not far away, but whose names I don't remember.

And when in doubt, recycle anyway. Even if the plastic is unfit for re-use, it is generally incinerated in environmentally approved facilities, with proper filtration.

Burnt unfiltered plastic releases toxic levels of p.c.b's.

It is regrettable that bio-degradable plastic has yet to gain traction on an industrial basis. It was developed around 5 years ago, in the US, as I recall.
Many people simply don't grasp the theory of recycling; never have and never will.

My experience indicates that southern Europe is as guilty of plastic pollution as the Asian nations; there are simply many more people in Asia.
