all about the visa

It's as official as it's going to get until we actually board the plane. We're going to Brazil!!!

I can't even explain how excited I am about this. It's totally ridiculous how this has all worked out. The very best part of the story is the visa application part, so I am going to write about that. This morning, Deb called me and asked me when my passport was issued. I said that i thought it was june of this year but wasn't sure of the date... her tone sank as she continued to tell me that in order to apply for a Brazilian visa, your passport had to be at least 6 months old. But i wasn't sure about the dates, so I wanted to check before making any kind of decision.

I called up my mom and asked her to fish out my passport and check the date on it. She found it and read off the date to me... date of issue June 8, 2007... my heart totally sank to the bottom of my toes. She kept reading, "date of expiry December 7, 2007." that didn't make sense, because i knew that it didn't expire for 10 years... and then i realized that she had just read me the dates for my Indian visa... OH SNAP! So I told her where to look for the passport date and when she found it, she let the air go stale for a moment heightening the anticipation... then she read off "date of issue, May 11, 2007." Two days ago was 6 months... I couldn't even handle it. I started jumping up and down!

This is the statue of Jesus that is in Rio, I think that we are going on a tour to see it.

This is the pic that was on the main website for the hotel we're staying at

This is one of the pics on the website of the type of suite we will be staying in... apparently there weren't any rooms left, so we were forced to upgrade to a suite... bummer.
