30 December, 2008

As of 12/30/08 La Hija and I will be living in El Savador with El Capitán. I spoke with the fine folks at the Salvadoran Consulate in Chicago and they set my mind at ease. I had been reading too much about what other people claim their requirements were for residency, which were in conflict with what El Capitán was told at Dirección General de Migración. Basically, they just said "come here and we'll deal with it then," which made me (understandably) nervous. After all of this time apart, the last thing I wanted to deal with is not having some paperwork go through as planned, but the woman at the consulate explained how it would work, so I've got a game plan now.

Otherwise, it's just a waiting game right now. Packing and prepping and getting more and more excited each day.

I'm happy to see that you started blogging! I'll be excited to hear about El Salvador. BTW, one of my brother-in-laws in from El Salvador, but he left 24 years ago.

I wrote a long answer to your last comment and I was afraid that you wouldn't see. Can you drop me a line at the address on my blog? I won't spam you, promise!

Thank you for leaving my very first commentary on this slow-to-start blog of mine! I appreciate your time and your words.

Chicadedios25: a bit scary for sure, but the excitement is outweighing the fear at this point (thankfully).

LG: I just sent you an email :)
