Visa on order

I made it to the Brazillian consulate in Boston at 9 am, in time to be #10 in line for a tourist visa. The visa costs $130, by money order, and signs posted in the consulate say it is only that high because the US charges the same for Brazil. All of the other countries listed were MUCH lower, usually below $50. I had my itinerary to go with the tour guide into Brazil, but not my itinerary to fly to Argentina. Apparently, this wasn't acceptable, and I had to go across the building to print these. (another $5 gone) After waiting for about 2.5 hours total, I think in the future I will do this by mail. I still have to go pick up my passport and visa up on monday. Brazil better be awesome for all of this running around.
