Passports Returned

After more than 8 months we finally have our passports back in hand. Just in time too because in three days (July 21st) I will be heading home to PEI for a few weeks!  We handed over our passports during the first week we were in Bangladesh (November 2012) to apply for extension of our NGO visas.  Apparently, our applications (not our passports) got lost during processing somewhere between Dhaka and Chittagong and we had to start the process from scratch.  We were notified mid May that our visas were extended until June 30, 2013 (the business year end and 45 days away) so we applied for the third time for extension.  Happily, our new visas are valid until June 2014.

I am looking forward to spending time with family and friends and enjoying the beach without sweating in a shalwar kameez.  Jon will meet me mid August in Dubai for a few days before returning to Bangladesh.  We may check out the indoor skiing hill since we missed winter of 2013 or slide through a glass shark tank at Atlantis theme park.
