I am now the proud possessor of a shiny new FM-3 visa. It’s good for one year (renewable up to 5) and I am free to work at my current job, open a bank account, put the electric bill in my name and get a cell phone with a plan (instead of the pay as you go kind), among other (not very) exciting things that happen when you are not a tourist.

(If you are wondering, I am very much aware of my privilege and that this process is not possible in reverse – Mexico to US instead of US to Mexico.)

We are going to celebrate this weekend, as we are both too exhausted from our working schedules to celebrate in the moment.
