We have been struggling with our Kazakh visas for 2 weeks now, and as of today we still don't have our passports in hand with visas. Yes, you heard that correctly...we have 1 working day left or we can not get on that plane. I am usually good natured and roll with the punches fairly well, but I am officially declaring myself in Panic Mode. The Assistant Stork has been phenomenal in trying to push this through, and I have nothing but high praise for Steve Morrison there. This is really a delay caused by the Kazakh Embassy in the US, and we are praying hard and long that Steve's courier can pick it up this evening and get it FedEx'd in time to us.
So...any of you out there who are praying folks, can I ask for a little one to be sent up for us??
Otherwise, I really am calm, believe it or not! :-)
