I got my visa! The consulate had magically received (today, I think) the piece of paper that I needed from the ANAEM to get my visa. The woman asked me to pay but I told her I thought it was free so she called around and I didn’t have to pay ($135). Big sigh of relief.
I ate lunch afterward with Lisa L and then she showed me her new house. It’s very nice. Her kitties were nice too.
