Default My K-3 Colombiana makes a trip to Mexico

My wife has met several Mexicanas in her ESL classes so I figured it would be just a question of time before they suggested a trip to one of the nearby Mexican border towns. I must confess that I was a little apprehensive about the trip and told her to make sure she stopped at US immigration before she left to show them her passport and visa and ask if she had to turn in her I-94 card. They told her that if she was just going over for the day, she could keep the card and show it when she re-entered the country. When they returned from Mexico, she had to go into the office where they checked her visa information on the computer. The border patrol officer had actually lived in Colombia so this was a wonderful opportunity for him to chat with my wife. A few minutes later they were on their way back to San Antonio. After 43 years never setting foot outside of Colombia, now she has been to the United States and Mexico - maybe Canada's next! As usual, everything for her is "muy tranquillo".

Hi Utopia

When I first read the title of your thread I thought it might be bad news but I was really happy to see that it was a happy story. It's great to see that your wife, after not leaving Columbia for 43 years is now expeiencing different countries and cultures. You must be very proud of her and I'm pretty sure she is very proud of herself.

Maggie.
