Colombian Consulate Visit

Today we went to the Colombian consulate to get my travel visa and Sara's national id.  The visit went pretty smooth except that the consulate wanted a notarized copy of our referral letter from ICBF.  All we had was a copy sent to us from our agency that was not notarized.  After a little pleading, what we had was sufficient!  I pick up my travel visa in two more days.  Keep in mind that you need to pay $50 even though the documents sent to us state exemptions for US nationals.  We had to walk a few blocks to HSBC Bank to pay the $50 and get a receipt to bring back after the three day processing period.  Driving in to the DC consulate wasn't that bad, garage parking was $16... Metro may be a better option.
