Well for about 24 hours, we were going to be returning to the US for 3 months, applying for Bryan's long-stay visa (which we were told we didn't need before we left), living with our parents and then returning to France for another 8 months. Thankfully, that isn't necessary. With the assistance of our tutor, we were able to get the correct application, which we promptly complied with and submitted. Today Bryan, who is not illegal, got his 5-year resident card. We're moving to Royan in three weeks, with a whole new set of experiences waiting to be set into motion.
Open invitation to come join us...we've got a guest room!
