Today we continued working on all the details of immigrating here to Paraguay.
Our first stop was to go back to Dr.S for the required medical work. We then headed to Interpol to get the clearance from them. We had been given a list of papers required for this , but, as is always the case, a few important details had been left out.
We were sent a few blocks away for more passport photos and then photocopies.
Oh, wait! The photo copies have to be authenticated by a notary. There happens to be one a few blocks away.
Another walk, come back, fill out these forms, sign this. We are done for the day...come back tomorrow.
We stopped at a used furniture store and picked out a wooden wardrobe for Jewel who has no closet in her room. We found a very nice one and they delivered it later in the afternoon.
Then we stopped at Burger King and the whoppers tasted much better than they do in the states. I wonder why that seems to be?
Then off to change more money!
Back home again, to get ready for my appointment with the Physical Therapist. She was great and I will see her 3 x this week to get things started.
Tomorrow we have to go get our blood work done for immigration. We have to be tested for Aides and VDRL (Syphilis)as well as get an electrocardiogram. Then off to the US Embassy for a paper to show we have no alias. I wonder, does Jungle Mom count as an alias????
Then tomorrow night I will be having a few people over for coffee and desert. I am excited to see them as they are fellow bloggers.
