Use it at Your Own Risk.......................

Buen Dia.
Thanks to those who made rain predictions. I will keep you posted.

But to let you know how the days are progressing, to the south, Mt Alamos cannot even be seen here late Saturday as the clouds have it fully covered. I thought it might go ahead and rain, but it didn't. Here is Saturday, but looking north. We were surrounded and even Senor said...........rain. There was none.
Same two lovely trees, same direction, Sunday night, definately a lot of wind and most likely..............rain...........Not a drop fell.

Monday night, to the northeast, beginning to billow, but nothing happened.

Back to the north on Tuesday night and the clouds quickly became a brilliant show of lightning that stretched from the north to the east. But no rain.

More of Tuesday night's brilliant billowing clouds to the north and east.

I am eager to see what happens tonight. I can feel it, this accumulation of energy and strength. And I know that it will continue to gather and gather and then, it will let loose.
I only hope it does not happen while we are gone.
Yes, we are going.....................back to Hermosillo and the dreaded Immigration building. I finally reached them yesterday after many tries, and the lady said..................they will be ready Friday morning.

Would you trust her?

Below is a copy of the new brochure from Immigration. Look at the second photo.

I WANT this guy! I want him to wait on us. I want him to renew my FM3. I want him to be just as he is in the photo, all smiling and happy and doesn't he just look like a very helpful guy? Doesn't he look like he knows what he is doing?

If we get told on Friday there is some kind of problem I am going to pull out this brochure and tell them I want to talk to this guy only. I will communicate only with him.

Below you can see that the FM3 which used to have to be renewable every year for five years and then a new one had to be applied for, is now good for renewal for ten years.
That only makes sense as the renewal is more expensive than getting a brand new one, so there will be more money now for Immigration. I think this is okay.

Now here is the letter the lady sat down and typed for us and made us sign.
She wrote it all in caps.
(POST NOTE on June 17th, 2010) !!!
Per the original post, after much consideration, I have removed the original letter.
After retranslating the original letter and racking my poor brain which has low memory capacity and talking it over with Senor and with input from a neighbor as well, we believe that most people will need the letter below to renew their FM3.
(certain people in certain situations may need other letters, because our visas state that we can work in mexico, that is what happened to us, we needed more letters)
Bajo protesta de decir verdad y apercibido de las sanciones que corresponden a quienes proporcionen informacion falsa ante la autoridad migratoria, en los terminos de los articulos 116 y 118 de la Ley General de Poblacion y 247 del Codigo Penal Federal, el suscrito manifiesta que los datos asentados y la informacion que acompana a la presente solicitud son verdaderos y que no tiene restricciones de ingreso o estancia derivadas de una resolucion migratoria anterior.
The interesting thing is this information is already on your own application when you fill it out. It can be found right above the lines where you will put your signature and date. So, if the letter is already there, why do we need to write it out again? I have no idea.........once again, each situation may be different, so use it at your own risk.

Hasn't rained in over a month here, all the plants are looking very thirsty.

Good luck with la migra!

Brenda said...

IMHO if she said they would be ready on Friday I would wait until about next Wednesday and phone again to see if they are ready.
Just my 2 cents.
Dry here naturally and warm and sunny of course.
Be prepared for the heat in Hermosillo and make sure you drink lots as you don't sweat much there and can get dehydrated easy. You probably know all that though.
Have a good trip, whenever you go.

Yipee, congratulations!!!!!
I spent an hour on the immigration site the other day looking for the forms and couldn't find them anywhere, just the instructions. Will have to look again, must be missing something.
Have a good trip.
