Success! I have my tourist visa to Vietnam securely in my passport.
Scoutt was a saint today. He took the day off of work to drive me into the city and make sure I got everything done that I needed to. We arrived to the consulate a little after 9am, and luckily it was practically empty. By 9:30 I had my passport back and a 30 day visa to Vietnam. I must say the Vietnam visa is not as pretty as China’s.
While we were in the city we stopped by and visited with Kendra before we went to get my glasses adjusted. Back in Sonoma County I had a fantastic massage that seems to be helping my sore neck enormously. Now I am laying in bed with a heating pad, trying to do anything I can via the internet.
