I’ve only had my passport for a couple of years but I’ve already run out of pages so needed to renew it. The UK consul is at the Kerry Centre, which is just down the street from my apartment. Inside the consul it looks likes a generic government office you find in the UK and it even has a picture of the Queen and Prince Philip on the wall. The picture is pretty old and looks like her coronation picture from 1952. Amazing to think she has been in power for over 50 years and still going strong. Looking at the picture I did feel a little home sick as it’s not often you see a picture of Queen in China. It makes me want to watch the movie The Queen again, starring Helen Mirren who really looks the part.
