My New Adventure

Two weeks ago today I got engaged to Shannon Rock.

I'm not going to expand on this too much but needless to say we are both very excited.  We are planning everything out.  Planning, which isn't my forte, a wedding from two different locations sucks.  I have to say that this makes long distance much harder.

Luckily I freaking love this girl.  That's about it for this blog.

Being Home

Hey all,

Well this isn't going to be an exciting post.  I've been in the states for a few weeks now.  I came home to get my visa information squared away.

Basically what happened is that Bolivia will ONLY let you apply for a visa if you are in the states.  That means if I want to volunteer I have to wait here for the required "1 month" while they process my visa.

So I was curious about where I was in the visa process and decided to call and ask.  This is how it went.

Me:  Hola Hablas Ingles (Hi do you speak English)
Consulate person:  No
Me: Quero Conocer donde mi visa es. (I want to know where my Visa is)
Consulate person: Mister you have to call back at 3:00 (in english)
Me:  Don't you close at three????
Consulate person: Yes! (And they hung up)

If there is one thing in this world I hate more than our government it is the government in other countries!  So what does that mean?  Well I've got to change my ticket so that I'm in the states for another two weeks.  Yup, two freaking weeks and $200 because they are slow...

At least I'm not wasting my time here.  I've been "helping" around my parents shop by engineering a few work a rounds for their accounting system.

Alright I'm going to jet and try to write a better blog than that for next time.
