Michael returned to Bangalore today for the second time in two weeks. No he didn't just want to rack up the airmiles (but I guess he is). He left Vancouver Thursday, July 8th and unfortunately had to return the next week due to an urgent family situation. Around the world in less than a week.
The only problem was that he didn't have time to register with the FRO (Foreigners Registration Office). He arrived in Bangalore Sat. and had to leave again Tues. They did detain him for about fifteen minutes at the airport and he had to explain the emergency situation to the officer and then to the "big man." Luckily they let him leave but warned him there might be a fine when he returned again. Definitely a bit stressful.
But today, he returned to Bangalore and no problem at all getting into the country. It's Wed. morning and just hours after arriving...he's on his way to the FRO office.
