Without a country!

My Passport renewal seems to have fallen into a very large black hole at the Canadian Embassy in Rome and my Residency here in Genova seems to have found the same hole! I am officially without a country!

I can’t leave Italy because I have no Passport and seems like I’m also still not completely officially here either. It feels really weird to not be able to go anywhere. Last week we were stopped by the Police for a random check. Crap! What document do I give them? A photocopy of my vanished, almost expired Passport? A photocopy of my Permesso because the original is safely at home where it won’t get lost?

I finally settled on my Driver’s Permit. I held my breath just waiting for them to return to the car and ask what the heck is this? But luckily, after what felt like 20 minutes, they came back and said have a nice day…WHEW!
