Well I decided against better judgment to renew my UK passport, technically I could survive on my US one, but what the hey.

Last time I renewed it in 2004 I overnighted it to the Embassy in DC - and 80 quid poorer and 3 days later received my renewed passport.

Monday evening I Fedex'd it to the much more convenient location of Durham, UK that is. They received it 6 hours ago.

Between shipping and the new fees this one will cost 145 quid, taking into account shipping and inflation I'd say it's costing me close to 30% more.

So for those who enjoy a betting game, any bets on when (if) I get it back?
