Doesn't that seem sort of logical? It did in my mind. Until I got there and of the hundreds (and I'm not exaggerating) of people there, I saw one American.
Anival was here at 9:00 and we left for the embassy. Henry was also here at the same time and took Mom and Dad to Bolivar Square and the Gold Museum. I think they had a really good time. When we got to the embassy I waited while Anival checked us in. He thought it would be about 20 minutes. 40 minutes later I was called up. In this 40 minutes, Murphy screamed bloody murder. She was tired and there was a lot of noise so she couldn't sleep. It was very nice having everyone in the area stare at you. Like they weren't staring to begin with. I went to the desk and she asked for lots of documents. Then I went to the next window to pay $380 and there was no cashier. So I waited while and he finally showed up. Then they called my name again to be interviewed. She asked if everything on the forms were true as to my knowledge. I said yes. Then she asked me about Murphy's medical condition. I explained it and she said "OK, you're approved. Come back tomorrow to pick it up." This all took three hours. It went fast but a crying baby didn't help.
I got back to the motel and Mom and Dad weren't back yet. We ate sandwiches for dinner. That's our typical fare. Cheese sandwich and chips. When Mom & Dad got back we went to the emerald dealer, Freddy's, then Megan, Mom & I went to the Harley store (notice bags in hand).
Then to the Hard Rock Cafe. Then home. We packed the two suitcases for Dad to take tomorrow and took some pictures of the babies. It's so fun being here with the people we are. There is a woman here from St. Louis now. And Isabelle the French woman, plus Megan, Juel, and the kids. We all just get along well and enjoy doing things together. It's nice.
We all went to Azzuros for supper tonight for Dad's last day here.
His pink eye is looking better. He'll leave the motel at 5:30 tomorrow morning so it will be early for all of us. Then Mom moves in with us for two days. We'll be ready to go home. I'm a little worried about Murphy's temperment on the plane. I don't think even Mom believed me until she got here. Everyone may just clear out around us and give us the whole row (which is what we're hoping for!).
Tomorrow we might walk to the park. Mom and I need to hit up Maku again. We do have three suitcases to fill afterall.
Carmen, we will borrow the camera on Sunday night if you don't mind. If you can download the videos and email it to me I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
OK, have a great night!!
