Getting ready

Yesterday we received documents and forms from the Swiss government allowing us to proceed with the work visa. Today we made a trip to the Swiss consulate in San Francisco to submit the material--time is very short and I need my passport back in hand to make the trip.

While it took three hours to get from Sacramento to SF (the traffic has not abated even with the price of gas at almost $4.50/gal), it only took about fifteen minutes in the consulate. Both we and the Swiss are fairly efficient!

We're going to leave the night before our flight and stay in SF rather than deal with the wear and tear of the traffic tie-ups. My nerves couldn't stand another thirty minute wait to get on the Bay Bridge.

So far, so good.
