Americans & Canadians

Just got back from the Immigration Office. Got a new FM2 visa. They tell me I can be Naturalized in 2 years, and I will go for it as that will be the end of yearly visits to Immigration and yearly visa payments. It cost me about $340 bucks this year.
They even threw a party for everyone getting visas at immigration, lots of people, I saw Germans, Italians, Americans, Canadians, Koreans, Chinese, Israelis, Spaniards and many South & Central Americans. The Director gave a speech welcoming us and they served cider for a toast. great food too.

I have to admit they are very courteous with me here , not like in the old days. In the 60's thet were rude, different regime, Echeverria was more left leaning and there was an atmosphere of anti gringo in the air. But things have changed over the years and they're nicer now.

Congratulations hombre! We are about to embark on a new FM3 for Anita - hope it goes as well.

Your cost seems high - are you paying someone to help?
