So in keeping with my geography lesson... Off I flew to Dover Delaware. Well I did not really fly, but drove for the day. In Delaware the apostilles at the state level are $30 for the whole kit and kaboodle. Grand total savings of $1500!!! So the third time is hopefully a charm. The papers are off to Indianapolis to be reviewed, then certified at the Russian embassy, sent to Russia and translated.. Should hear by the end of the month when I will be able to travel!
