It's gonna be close....

Embassy staff did not, in fact, have the boys' visa packets ready at 8a when I arrived at their office this morning. Essentially told me I was just plain out of luck and that they'd see me at 3p. I resisted the urge to give 'em some Dixon, but barely....

Went immediately over to the Ministry of Justice and left copies of all necessary documents, exluding the visas, in hopes that someone could review every thing and get started on the clearance letter.

Picked up the visa packets at 3p....then went again to the MOJ where I learned that the decision maker had been called out of the office all day by the President and had only just arrived at her desk.

I ratcheted down my expectations....and then got the official word that the letter would not be forthcoming today.

No promises for tomorrow either, if you want to know the truth.

But I'll be back over there first thing.

The only thing worse is the ineptness in the US Congress.

I really do hope you got your letter. You'd be close to heading to the airport right now if you did. PRAYING!!!

Just saw that you did not get the letter. Have a good weekend. keep the faith, and be ready to fight again Monday.
What's another two days after 2+ years? Though exasperating, it will be worth it this Thanksgiving!!
