Suds in the bucket & Bureaucratic frustrations

I just finished doing my laundry in a bucket with detergent made specifically for washing your clothes in a bucket! My forearms are going to be so tough after wringing out all of that water!
It was a refreshing act of physical labor after spending 3 hours on a bus into town and out of town. We've been trying to register with the Immigration office for about 4-5 days now. It's been an uphill struggle to get the proper paper work from our college here in India and today we were ready to visit the offices and finally register. After our 8:30am class we leave by 11am, skipping our International Social Work class at 11:40am. However, after a 1 and a half bus ride into the city we get there only to find they've closed for the day. They're only open from 9:30am-12:30pm. What a window! Wednesday is our last chance to register before we begin to get charged $40 a day for late registration each. Money which will be coming out of our excursion budget. We're all just ready for this bureaucratic mess to be over with.
