In Which We Take The Air
We got up bright and early to get to the visa office first thing in the morning. That part was not particularly fun. But after we turned in Ellen's old visa and received the appointment card for her new visa (which we will pick up on Wednesday) we hopped back in the van with Miss Oh and her very nice driver and headed off to one of the floating markets south of Bangkok.
As a side note, I don't normally make recommendations on here but if you are adopting from Thailand I highly suggest you hire Miss Oh to help you in country. She knows the ins and outs of the adoption process here extremely well and has been absolutely invaluable to us here. We'd probably be in big trouble right now without her help, since our process has been much more complicated than we anticipated.
So we got back to the hotel around one in the afternoon, and relaxed for a while. Then we went out to dinner with a friend. All in all I'd say it was a very nice day! I think we're going to really enjoy ourselves tomorrow too-- it will be a very laid back day for us.
We might even sleep in!
