1st step

mounds of paperwork
months of running here
running there
a passport full of russian visas
63 headaches
a truckload of red tape
black fingertips


and i left this
jewel of a passport office
wiping my brow
with a stamp in my passport
making official
my first step in getting that
russian green card.
with still
plenty of work ahead.

sigh.

I was wondering the other day where you were with that. Yuck. Sounds like a huge headache!

government paperwork...so much fun. I have to work on a passport and the whole dual citizenship thing for T. Hopefully it is as easy as it was for me getting my greencard!
Good luck!
