New Passport in 9 Days

A couple of month ago, I discovered my passport was missing. I looked all around my house but couldn't find it anywhere. Since I'm going to Munich in September, I had to get a new one. So last week, I went to Denver's Downtown Post Office, filled out an application, gave them an original birth certificate, got pictures taken - the whole ball of wax. It cost me around $100 and didn't take more than 30 minutes.

I was amazed when my new passport arrived yesterday in the mail. That's a mere 9-day turnaround! The last time I had to get a new passport, it cost me $350, but I also got it in 2 days. It's good to see getting new passports is an efficient process these days.

A year ago in August I had to renew my passport and I did so by driving to the office in South Aurora at I-225 and Parker Road. It cost me something like $127 and I got the passport in two business days.

don't the new US Passports look like they were designed by the Colbert Report? but be warned, you'll have the dreaded "this replaces a lost passport" amendment on the final page. i was once accosted by a dutch border guard over this issue. him: "what happened to your other passport?" me:"well if i knew, it wouldn't be lost!"
