Finally here & POE!

Hello everyone!

I've been in the U.S about a week now and I still don't think it has quite sunk in yet. Maybe after that 90 day mark when I know I don't have to leave again.

I entered the U.S through Houston airport, was asked to wait in the secondary questioning room (third time I've had to wait there) while they checked my visa and the big envelope that the embassy sends you and asks you not to open. I was getting very impatient because even though I leave a decent amount of layover time between flights, the time it takes waiting in that room, then picking up my bags which are usually the only ones standing in the middle of the baggage claim room by this point, rechecking my bags and getting the airport shuttle to the next terminal - cuts it close!

So I was getting quite agitated sitting there and tired after a 10hr+ flight but the only question I was asked eventually was when was my wedding date and then I was free to go!

I'm not sure how bad other airports are at POE but for those entering through Houston and are connecting - leave plenty of layover time at least three hours!

To me it feels like a half hour walk just getting from the plane to the immigration hall in Houston. :P

Glad you arrived safely and and don't have to leave this time.
