    Default formal letter

    Hello, I'm writing a letter and i am not sure about a sentence. I'll apreciate any help.
    Dear Dr. XX
    I am sorry to bother you again I know you are a very busy person, but I wanted to ask you if you have any information about my possible academic exchange in the Anthropology Department at the University XXX. I would like to know how the process is going because in the case you accept me as visiting scholar I would have to do some paperwork here in Mexico that takes sometime.

    I thank you in advance for your time and hope to hear from you shortly.
    Yours sincerely,
