My trip is back on track and I am in a more positive frame of mind. I rode into Maumere with a plan to wait at Imigrasi until I got what I wanted. My appearance stirred Oscar (the officer who I have dealt with the most) to act. I only had to wait around ten minutes before I was handed my passport, complete with a visa extension authority. I suspect that what Oscar did in that ten minutes could have been done at any time during the last four days. Oh well. I am now allowed to stay in Indonesia for the next 43 days. On another positive note, my replacement rack is on its way to my parents’ house (I have decided to buy a different front rack altogether, so it made sense to have the free replacement rack sent home). I have also had a productive afternoon progressing my website.
