this is a nightmare. now the embassy is requesting that medical and radiological reports be submitted. I can get it done here in vancouver, I think, for $195 plus whatever it takes to make sure the results are fedexed to washington instead of express-mailed to ottawa.
the only problem is that the whole thing takes a week or more, not including processing time in washington, and I have to be in sydney by march 31st in order to start this semester. which is preferable, since I've already packed, quit my job and bought my airline tickets. oh, and travelled part of the way there.
can I wake up now?
