# of visits we have made to the Visa office in the past two months: 7
# of Visas we have in hand: 2
# of ice-cream cones bought to appease children tired of waiting at the visa office: approximately 6, but who's counting
# of visits to the visa office before they actually give us cards for Noemi and Isobel: anybody's guess
# of months before we get to turn around and do this all over again: 10.5
That said, it's totally worth it to be here in Romania.
