Carte de Sejour...Success!

WE NOW HAVE our official residence cards. I won't bore you with the details, other than to say the nice gentleman from yesterday let us into the building 15 minutes early and told us to wait in an office down the hall. We were first in line!

Except that we found out it was, you guessed it, the wrong line. So instead of being 15 minutes early, we ended up getting into the correct line about 20 minutes late and had to wait 6 hours until our we finally had our card.

It was a nice gesture by the nice man, but it actually may have cost us about three hours.

I can't make this stuff up, folks.

Six hours with the kids at the Préfecture! I think you deserve a LOT of Dr Pepper for that. Congratulations on getting your Carte de Séjour :)
