Hi y'all

Well I finally made it to the USA. I started the DCF ball rolling on July 27 through
the Sydney office, got married on Oct 6, had the interview on Oct 15, and arrived
with stamped passport on Oct 22.

The activities of Sep 11 didn't make anything harder, just longer queues. And when it
came to customs and declaring any food or other goods (like my didge) the sheer
mention of Vegemite was enough to get me waved through.

Now we can settle down into our wonderful married life.

For all those starting out on this adventure, take things patiently and all
will be ok.

Steve

Hi, Steve,

My Steve has his interview at the Sydney Consulate tomorrow morning. We went the K-1
route because we didn't learn about DCF in time.. oh, well!! We'll be together soon
in any case.

Which point of entry did you select? My Steve will be coming through LAX, and I'm
just curious if he can expect the same as you had. He won't be bringing Vegemite,
however. But probably lots of Tim Tams!!

Thanks for posting your experience. Those of us dealing with Sydney find it
invaluable and a true comfort. And welcome to the United States!!

Take care, Rae

It took me one bite to become totally addicted.. we're making them our wedding
favors, and I wish we weren't and were keeping them all to ourselves!! What's your
address? <wink>

Hi, Di,

Yes, I have, and they're my new favorites!! It's a good thing we're not moving back
to Oz for a few years, or I'd weigh 200 pounds -- all due to Tim Tams... I think they
put heroin in them, I really do!!

Xmas time!

TIM TAM UPDATE - My US Fiance got so addicted to Tim Tams he called Arnots when he
was in Australia about the chances of exporting them to the US. Apparently Pepperidge
Farm are already looking into it so we may see them in the stores really soon. My Mum
will be happy because it will save her a fortune in postage!!!

Pepperidge Farm used to sell them here as something like "Chocolate Mousse" in their
International collection, but they stopped a few years ago (or at least I stopped
finding them on the shelf...)
