Hi Champswc2011, Great Job ! People gonna bless you for putting out such detailed information. I have scheduled my visa interview in Nuevo Laredo on Feb 20th-21st. My wife (H4) will be accompanying me as well. I have planned almost the same itinerary as yours. I have few questions which I think you might be able to answer. I would appreciate your time and efforts. Did you book a cab quite ahead of time for border to hotel ? If yes, was it a prepaid service ? How much did they charge from border to hotel. Is it safe to keep personal belongings (phones, laptops) at hotel room while you are at US Consulate ? Do you recommend carrying Mexican currency ? And how much ? Thank You again !
