Obstacles and Pronunciation

I sent off my visa and passport applications today. It was a very confusing process, and as usual, I'm afraid that a small typo will invalidate the entire thing. But that's how it's always been with everything, and I've gotten along fine so far. In any case, I'll eventually get a nifty government business passport (or something like that).

If you're wondering how to pronounce "Benin", here's a handy explanation (courtesy of Fon is Fun):

American Pronunciation: "buh-nihn or beh-neen" (the first one is preferred by the Peace Corps staff it seems)

French Pronunciation: "luh buh-nĂ£"

Also, this is neat.
