You can't tell but...

There's one happy chica at our house (actually shed) today - Amanda now is the proud owner of a 2 year missionary visa courtesy of the Ecuadorian Consulate in Sydney Australia. It's been a bit of a mission to get it sorted - not helped by the fact that when we sent the money over via Telegraphic Transfer to pay for it, the bank over there took $20 as a fee!I had to send more money - which we found out was not so easy. (Our bank here doesn't send less than $100???). Anyway in the end - it cost us another $25 to send it with Western Union - a lesson learned for future reference!
At the end of the day - we got through the red tape and now we are all ready to jump on that plane! Bring it on!

That is great news about Amanda's visa. Any news on the sale of your house? We(Cong. BaƱos) have the C.O. visit some time in June. It would be great if you were here by then.
