Well, not really but there's a light at the end of the tunnel! I just received a tentative travel date of April 29th (I have to be there by then). That's when they expect my case to be cleared through the Vietnam side of things . . .
I've already booked flights and hotel-so hopefully nothing changes. So-Mom and I are looking to fly out on the morning of Friday the 27th, arriving in Hanoi late in the evening on the 28th (yay!) and returning on the 20th of May.
