hurricane noel kicked our asses.yesterday samil had "his" appointment with american citizen services at the consulate to get his american passport. why the consulate was even open during a hurricane... nobody knows. we left the house at 6:30 am, waited for the bus to be given the go ahead, rode 2 hours toward the capitol, only to be turned around with 40 minutes left to the voyage.
apparently the river swelled and the bridge collapsed. and some people died. good thing the americans were still open for business. sometimes i really, really understand the contempt people hold for us and not just our government.
anyway, the bus turned around and by 12o'clock we were back in the house.of course, now we have to reschedule our appointment.. which is nearly impossible since the consulate apparently doesn't have a telephone that works. or at least people to answer them when they ring.
samil turned 2months on monday and is getting cuter by the day.
