Letter of Recommendation

So get this, I have to get a VISA to work in Thailand! Can you believe it? Outrageous! I mean, I'm an American! We should be exempt from such rules due to our strong moral values and nuclear world dominance, right? Cripes.

Anyway, in order to get a work visa I have to get a letter from the head of the Chemistry department at Chiang Mai university to show to the Honorary Consulate-General at the Thai Embassy in Portland, OR. The letter I recieved is in Thai, which I can't read.

Hopefully this letter says "Dr. Cory Scanlan is great, please give him a Visa," and not "Kill the bearer of this letter with extreme prejudice." I guess I'll find out tomorrow when I truck on up to Portland.
