Well, tadalafil all has not gone as planned. Today on our fourth visit to the Colombian embassy in an attempt to get our visas (so we can leave on Monday) we left empty-handed – again. We went yesterday and the man who has been helping us through this process asked us to come back this morning since it was really close to closing time. We went that late because a document showed up and we just went straight over. Anyway, this morning we went first thing and he came and sat down to talk to us. “All you have to do is let me get a paper for you, take it to the bank to pay and come back with your receipt and you’ll get your visa.” He then went to get the papers we needed and we waited…and waited…and waited…

I finally saw him again and he looked very grim. He came out and told us that a new consul had started working there just two days before and was being very rigorous with the rules, etc. He said that he was ready to send us on with our visas, but that the new guy was demanding to review our case. We had to wait so we could speak with him. We waited…and waited..and waited…finally someone came to get our documents to review. Guess what we did next..we waited…and so on and so on…

He finally called us into his office. At this point we had been waiting for three hours. He went on to tell us that he needed us to produce two more documents, one from Colombia, one from the States and that our passports weren’t valid, so he couldn’t approve us.

So we’re not going to Colombia on Monday. We are going to leave on Saturday for Nicaragua for 72 hours to make our passports valid again, wait for some faxes and next Wednesday we will return to the embassy to try again. Now we’re shooting for Friday. Please keep us in your prayers. We’ll get to Colombia one way or the other, but please just ask for favor in all these steps. Thanks!
