Sigh

Called the consulate. No, the passports haven't been sent out, they don't know when they will, they will send email to New York. Oh yes, getting an emergency travel document is no problem at all. He just needs to get to Boston in person (in between 10am and 1pm on full moon days) and they will get one from New York. Takes only a few days to do that...

I don't know whether we have a few days :(

This is so frustrating. He just wants to take a plane to see his dying father and the freaking bureaucracy is messing everything up. This sucks.

It has been 15 days now since our Boston trip. When I went to get my passport in March, it took eight days to get it. Why does it have to take so long this time???

ugh, this isn't fair.

I'm so close to Boston - I wish there was something I could do. At least let me know next time you come down here, I can keep you company!

Sadly it can take 6-8 weeks. Trying calling your senator and/or congressman and explain the situation. Sometimes they can get thing rushed through.
