The new set of luggage waiting for me tonight when I got home was apparently just a teaser (as opposed to real progress). I've been waiting 2 weeks at this point for my updated driver's license to arrive. In order to get the Indian travel visa, we have to have that along with everything else. Anyone else not totally okay with mailing off your passport to a foreign agency??? That totally freaks both of us out.
Because of the limited time left to get the visa paperwork done, Harris is planning a last minute trip to TraVisa in D.C. to do the one day process. They assure us that it shouldn't take longer than 7-9 business days by mail...BUT, Murphy's Law prevails in our minds and this is paperwork we MUST have. Apparently, between now and November 30th (the day before we fly out), there are 4 days that are considered holidays between India and the US. So, either one or the other entity (TraVisa or the Indian Embassy), will be closed. That only gives us about 12 days for the turn around time. Too close for comfort!
On top of that, I still haven't heard from SCI that the wire transfer we sent has arrived. How long should it take, realistically??? It's just so much money to not have account for yet and it makes me so nervous. What in the world would we do if there was a problem and something happened to it in the transfer process? Is that even a possiblity?
Trying to breathe. Trying to get thru the last few things on the checklist so that this trip can happen with less stress. Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale.
