Re: Looking into an E2 visa, but need information on kids

Re: Looking into an E2 visa, but need information on kids

So was I. But as I don't go into the school EVERY day, I said every school event or sporting event. This includes drop off and pick up if I need to be spell it out in such detail.

Re: Looking into an E2 visa, but need information on kids

I don't agree with this. My daughter is 16, every school event or sporting event we attend, the kids are dressed differently, with their own style.

The charter school my daughter is at is in Sunnyvale.

I love no uniforms here, there's really no need to make all kids look and dress the same.

Re: Looking into an E2 visa, but need information on kids

We're kind of hijacking the thread a little here. We're also in Silicon Valley, Mountain View, to be precise.

My daughter was 5 when we moved to Los Angeles, she went to 2 private schools there....

Re: Thoughts month after moving into Bay Area

You're welcome, glad the info came in useful for someone. I knew someone had said Los Altos.

Blossom Hill in San Jose? What happened to Los Altos, didn't you just move here a couple of months ago?

Re: Dublin and Shannon Airports Experiences

Ah right. I think it was under construction, or being renovated when we were there. I remember an area all being fenced off now.

Is it you who moved to Los Altos? If so, go to The Milk Pail on the corner of San Antonio and California in Mountain View. Their produce is excellent and cheap, they have over 100 cheeses from all...

Re: Dublin and Shannon Airports Experiences

Also, don't make the mistake of going through pre-clearance too early at Dublin. There is nothing at all to do at the other side, and no access to anything other than a small newsagent style shop.

Re: Bay Area CA driving license holder needed

Yes, we were outside the 10 days, virtually impossible to do it within that window. It was 10 years ago now, but the instructions have stayed the same.

Re: Bay Area CA driving license holder needed

Both me and my husband drove ourselves to our test, no problems at all.

Why are you going all the way to Oakland to do your test when you're in Los Altos? Are appointments that full locally?

Yikes! moving countries is certainly the biggest hassle ever, it involves so much and things that can't possibly be put off. Good luck with it all, and enjoy your time in Porto.
