Arrived 2000-February

1st Labor - 2003 - Company A (RIR)
2nd Labor - 2004 - Company B (RIR) (no one knows where it went)
3rd Labor - 2006 - Company B (PERM)

Managed to get a seat in 07-2007 bus

Still sleeping in the bus. Don't know when I reach the destination.

Even if life ends before the journey completes, the corpse will continue the travel until it gets the GC.

(not sure if AC-21s are applicable for corpses)

Poor EB3-I s, they have to travel with many corpses...
