Visit to the Netherlands

I'll be in the Netherlands from May 19 through May 27 to pick-up my L1b (intracompany-transfer) Visa-extension at the US Consulate in Amsterdam. It is a very strange and cumbersome process since I have to go outside of the US to pick it up eventhough I'm currently here and will be here afterwards. The reason they give for it is it not feasible to collect the biometric data in the US. The strange this is that at each border they have the means to enter that data and it is a very inexpensive set of equipment they use to collect it. Ah well, what am I complaining about; I'm getting a free trip to the Netherlands out of it...;-)
