Kolie gets his Passport back

We were so excited that Kolie was granted his Visa to visit the United States a week ago today. What we didn’t know, however, was the term of the Visa. It could be for one, three or ten years, with one or multiple entries. And we wouldn’t know until he got his Passport back by courier. I thought for sure it would come
Wednesday but it didn’t. Then Thursday morning Kolie had a meeting across town from his home office. After lunch, a co-worker called to tell him the envelope from the U.S. Embassy had arrived. He rushed across town, opened it, and found a ten year Visa inside! His co-worker snapped this pic of him outside his office.

It being an incredibly beautiful day in Bangkok, Kolie walked over to Wat Phra Kaew, the famous temple complex near his office. Thank goodness he had his new digital camera with him.

Sunny skies, happy feelings, and beautiful lotus buds and blossoms.
Wat Phra Kaew is a huge tourist attraction. I spent hours there my first trip to Thailand in 1998.

Later, when he came home, I snapped this picture of us in the carpark garden in front
of our townhouse. It’s not every day that young “single” men from developing countries get permission to visit America. We are truly blessed that at least for the next ten years we’ll be able to travel together to the good ole USofA whenever we want. I still have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. I probably would not make the trip we planned for the Holidays if he were not able to come with me.

If you’re interested in reading about the process we went through to get his B1/B2 Non-Immigrant US Visa you can read what I posted on the ThaiVisa Forum here and here.
