Oh, thank you US Government

Well, after spending the whole morning packing and trying to fit everything safely in all our suitcases, we received word that Gwyndolin's visa won't be ready today either!!!  Ugh!  We were suppose to have it yesterday so we could leave this morning at 8:30am.  So, we have to stay one more night here.  I called our hotel in HK and they were nice and are going to upgrade us to a room with a better view.  We are hoping our government can get it together and have her visa for us tomorrow!  Apparently, the problem is that the computer system in Washington DC that is needed for this process is down and so they can't process the visa.  NICE...  So, we are "eating" our hotel room in HK for tonight as it's too late to cancel...  Anyone want to send some good vibes/prayers towards that computer system, that would be great!  We are ready to move on...  So, one less day in HK - Boo Hoo!

If I don't post tomorrow, then that must mean we are traveling to HK...

Until next time...


  1. Grrr. I'll growl from here for you. I hate eating costs and missing things! I hope everything comes through asap for you and you can hop on over to HK and enjoy the end of your trip. I've enjoyed "virtually" traveling with you...thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh no, how frustrating! Will definitely send prayers and good thoughts your way, and hopefully things will get better. Hang in there!
