Today we got the great news that our Letter of Invitation (the official invitation from the Kazakh government to travel) is in Atlanta, with the agency director. Travel dates will follow in 2-3 business days. I suppose this means we may hear something on Monday. <WHEW> I was going to have to resort to calling my friend Guido to rough some people up. Just kidding of course. I'm still going away this weekend with the girlfriends and plan to do some heavy duty banking of sleeping hours. (Oh how I wish you could really do this!) Guess I'll only need the wine now, and not the kleenex! It's looking like we'll be leaving in about 2 weeks.
