Immigration Interview in Frankfurt

It took the US Consulate two and a half months to work their way thru our stack of papers. Meanwhile Alejandra and I had all our vaccinations updated and our medical exam done. I called three times during those weeks, just to make sure they hadn't forgotten about us. Then we finally received our invitation for the interview.

Train ride to Frankfurt again, stayed at the hotel Bristol again. I can't remember ever being that nervous in my life before. Sweat was pouring down my body, my hands were shaking, I kept checking my stack of papers again and again. The loudspeakers weren't very clear, we had a hard time hearing our names being called.

The interview itself was nothing like I had expected. A friendly, young officer asked Alejandra and Tom two questions each - I was just asked about our marriage date. Then I was told, that I needed to fax written permission from Fernando, that he allows Alejandra to go with me. And that was it!

On August 26th 2005 we received our immigration packages in the mail. Woo-Hoo!
