Visa update

Lunch date with Mark. He wasn’t dressed quite as Newbury Street this time, and didn’t seem as incongruous in the mall.

Filled in the forms to get my visa made permanent. Tomorrow I have to take a bunch of documents to work and get them photocopied—insurance forms, tax returns, apartment leases, and other things to demonstrate that sara and I really are married and living together, and not just pretending so I can get a visa. I also completed the form, which was way easier than any of the previous ones. To get it processed costs $125. They may want to interview us again.

Mid 2002, I get to start the naturalization process if I want to. I really need to start learning US history.

Scanned another 65 APS images of Berlin, which should keep me busy cropping and adjusting for an evening or two.
