I can't imagine how I will feel when there is one week left until the departure— nervous, excited, apprehensive? But now is the beginning of August and I have my visa. When my dad made the appointment a while back, we did not know how long it would take to get the visa— days, weeks, months? So after we were informed that our appointment was in mid-July, we became very apprehensive. However, the visa, pasted in one page of my passport, is in my hand and we can finally wipe the sweat from our faces.
