Future neighbours

As seen on Mowi:

"On the sixth day God turned to Archangel Gabriel and said: "Today I am going to create a land called Canada, it will be a land of outstanding natural beauty. It shall have tall majestic mountains full of mountain goats and eagles, beautiful sparkling lakes bountiful with bass and trout, forests full of elk and moose, high cliffs over-looking sandy beaches with an abundance of sea life, and rivers stocked with salmon."

God continued, "I shall make the land rich in oil so as to make the inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Canadians, and they shall be known as the most friendly people on the earth."

"But Lord," asked Gabriel, "don't you think you are being too generous to these Canadians?"

"Not really," replied God, "just wait and see the neighbours I am going to give them."

Bombs Away... Ohh no... Documents away

Finally, it's really official..
Buysse sent us a letter to confirm that the complete file is sent to Berlin. We should get a confirmation from them (Berlin) in 4-8 weeks.
They still expect that it takes 15-18 months to handle the request (and 2-3 more if an interview is needed, but that is unlikely).

So, that means April-May-June-July-August-September-October-November-December-January-February-March-April-May-June 2005

Roughly two months before that we will receive an invitation for a physical examination. So that is the next landmark ;-(

The money

This should really be the last step :-) We mailed a PDF of our "International Moneytransfer card" to Buysse to show that the "Processing Fee" is on it's way to the Canadian Embassy to Berlin.
We spoke with Buysse on Friday and they will sent it of on Monday.

Woeiii, IELTS passed

Yesterday a nice letter from the BLTC dropped on our doormat:
Listening: 9
Reading: 8
Writing: 7
Conversation: 8
So all points are in! Buysse received their copy yesterday as well, and they will contact us next week. All documents are now in, so we expect that they will sent it of somewhere in the next two weeks.
