I am on a journey, to make Aliyah, and want to share my journey with my family, friends and anyone that is interested. I made the decision to make Aliyah in December 2002 and now I am actually doing it. This blog will chronicle my story and adventures leading up to getting on the plane and then the continuing story of the beginning of my new life in Israel and what I experience once there.

Passport Pictures and More

Another milestone started today. I received the paperwork to complete and send in with my passport to obtain the immigration visa. I completed the paperwork and I had my 3rd set of passport pictures taken today. I wonder if they get kickbacks from the photo places for all those pics... Once completed and pictures obtained it was off to the post office to overnight the documents to the Shaliach's office in Maryland. While I stood in line to pay the fees I would have to say I felt a surge of emotions and I arrived at the window. I really had a shock at the window after the agent took my envelope. She asked I wanted to buy several Obama first-day covers. Why would I want to commemorate the administration that will devastate the American economy and the American way of life? Well after saying no thank you, I refocused on why I was there and left feeling satisfied. I guess in the next couple of weeks I'll get my passport returned, visa and all.
