Hey Netty....glad you are settled and survived the 'cankles' - Di had a similar experience when we went to Phuket last time and it was very unpleasant for her but after about 2 - 3 days it subsided.

Enjoy your time in Chile and stay safe

From Shelleigh - Friday, 9th December 2011, 07:23 (GMT)
Oh dear ..tripe for the first meal lol and here I was feeling concern for the seaweed element lol lol. So I would love to know what it actually tasted like after you got past the whole concept of eating tripe..Tripe is definitely one of those older generation things isn't it...the only time I had it my Nanny made it ..with white sauce JESUS I can still remember the texture. Glad you are there and being totally overloaded from a sensory perspective...Love ya BFF and loving that you are in Chile with your bro and his gorgeous family
hey you gotta be open to everything dont you ....perhaps i can share the recipe with you . My mum told me to try it and bring home the recipe for her, would you like it

I have purposely stayed away from your page so that I could savour your stories en masse :-) I was thinking you could combine your stories from here with your pics into a coffee table book from eblurb??? Anyway it sounds like you are having an amazing time...the cured raw fish sounds a bit like this stuff I had called gravalax which was salmon cured with herb s lemon juice and vodka..yum you I have had sea urchin and think your description was perfect snot lol . Did you do that special thing at Machu Pichu that you had said you were going to do??? Glad you are having such an amazing time and thinking of you and your adventures every day....Hola to Doug, Marisole and the boys from me xxx
yeah i think it is similar to gravlax, very very nice . Machu Pichu was great and very spiritual.
From Shelleigh - Tuesday, 20th December 2011, 06:59 (GMT)
