Elections and the Office of Immigration

The election is over and lets just say we were very happy with the results:) The event at the American Chamber was a lot of fun. Some highlights...the 2 mock elections one for US citizens and one for non-US citizens, the all you can eat American buffet and the Jack Daniels bar! The event began at 7:30 and ended around 4 a.m.  And yes, we stayed til 4.

Around 3am people were tired of standing.
Tomorrow morning we head to the Office of Immigration and apply for our resident permits. I have to say thank you to two people who have been so helpful in this whole process! At the very last minute Andrea translated Diane's business plan. We can not thank you enough Andi! And Peggy, you have been so patient with the numerous phone calls (three so far today) regarding faxes and money transfers. I don't know how we would have gotten everything finished without you two. We hope you both know how much we appreciate everything you have done! xo!!
