And say hello to everyone here. Didn't even know this area existed on VJ until yesterday! I am pleasantly surprised to find people in similar situations. We just filed our I129-F so we are new to the process. But I am praying that everything goes smoothly. As I am doing the same for everyone else here going through the same thing.

Nice to meet you all! :D

Taurean....yep, we will compare notes....right now I need to now where there are

cheap guesthouses for my fiance to stay at while in Dakar, do you know of any?

I am trying to find out what the waiting time is for the inerview in Dakar.

As soon as I get a NVC case number I will email / call them.

You need to buy this stupid phone card from certain vendors to even have access

to their informationline.

You can email or pm me anytime.
