The French Blog begins!

We're less than two months away from our sabbatical 1/2 year in France. Well...hopefully! Next Friday we will present ourselves at the French Consulate in LA to apply for our long-stay visas. I've been working for a couple of months now to gather all of the information that we need to acquire our visas. However, here we are now, less than two weeks away and not surprisingly...we have acquired some glitches. The three major missing pieces...a rental agreement, verification of adequate health insurance and the answer to what kind of visa I need!

And, not surprisingly, you can't just call the consulate with questions. Well, you can call, but you won't get to talk to anyone, nor can you leave a message. I've called, faxed and emailed. No answer yet, but I haven't panicked yet. Stay posted....the week's not over yet!
