Being an organized sort, I reviewed our checklist, updated our 3 prerogas and printed them, got 3 months worth of bank statements, copied those pages of our passports that have changed and swapped them for the appropriate jpgs in our passport copies, printed the passports, printed the copy of our escrito for the house, got the phone bill and the electric bill and pinted copies of them as well. You would think that doing this from a schedule would cover all the bases, right? Well, the answer is wrong. The format of the prorogas has changed for the third year in a row. Oh, and if the adddress on your phone bill and your electric bill do not match to the letter, they're not good either. In other words, what sailed through (after the requisite round of arbitrary changes) last year, won't do this year (again). Can someone explain to me why none of this bs happens to our friends on both ends of Baja (Rosarito and La Paz) nor to our friends in Guadalajara? Is it that the Cancun office is so screwed up, or do they just have it in for us gringos? At any rate, we've dumped the whole mess into the hands of our lawyer (thanks TJ, she's great) rather than my going postal and getting kicked out of the country, or worse. One of these days someone has to get a handle on what goes on here on the frontera.
