I went to Montreal for my US immigration interview on Dec. 19, and my application to immigrate was approved! This year has been amazing, with a whirlwind of trips and activities, all aimed at working towards this goal. I am so happy to have the chance to live in New York—it is truly a dream come true.
Visiting Montreal was an unexpected boon along the way. Though it was very cold (down to minus twenty), this was okay as it gave me a great excuse to shop for some fabulous winter gear at the Baie Montreal, shown above in Christmas splendor.
Here is another beautiful winter sight, a snow-draped statue in the Square Phillips, across from my hotel.
I am working on a technical writing contract for A&W, so I was pleased to visit this location on Rue Sainte-Catherine:
And this is a picture of me in my interview suit, after I got the Yes from US Customs and Immigration.
Wish me luck, and drop me a line here now and then! I hope you will stop by this site occasionally to see my monthly updates on life in New York.
P.S. I am moving on New Year’s Day!
