Hola Dorney,
All sounds good mate. My trick with taming dogs is to give them a sausage, the bigger the better with Rotties so you should be OK. Not much going on here will update you if anything interesting happens in Dubbo. (maybe in six months or so.)
Rastus
I dont want to feed itanything that looks even remotly like my fingers.

gday walrus
good to see you made it ok.
..hacer les todavia poseer una engrase estomago?
dont listen to rastus dubbo is cool and heaps of stuff happens here. you may have to introduce ralph to your size 14's by the sounds of it!
say hi to pish and my twin brother for me and be sure to have fun.
Bob
ralph eats size 14´s for breakfast. I kind of like both my feet.

Always, Always carry an exceptionally large hammer with you while in a foreign country,
Sounds like you are having a ball mate, Keep up the updates and see if you can get some pics up,
Not really practical to carry a large hammer but i will see what else i can come up with. Pics are not too far away
From Dave - Monday, 18th April 2005, 23:23 (GMT)
Hey Mate,
The Pic's are great, looks like you have seen some pretty cool places!! How's the spanish coming along? The most important thing to remeber is "una cervasa por favor". We moved into the new place last week and it's going well, not too much else to report. Keep the updates coming.
For someone who isnt that good at english, trying to tackle a new language is pretty tough. That and they speak so fast that a sentence rolls into what seems like one word.
From dave stephen - Tuesday, 19th April 2005, 00:21 (GMT)
Sounds like you're having ball. Very jealous! Always wanted to go to South America, but didn't make it. Instead stuck in Tamworth, so keep up the updates and photos as they provide a welcome escape from reality. have fun and say hi to Pish.
Will try and put some more exciting photos on just for you next time.
From ferg - Tuesday, 19th April 2005, 04:20 (GMT)
Whats doing big rocks.. Sounds like your are getting along ok.. I`m just doing the usual.. You should get some sleeping pills and slip them in that mungrels water bowl when the families not home that should give you a bit of breathing space.. Can`t wait to see some pics.. take it easy killer
Good luck with the trials bro. Hope to see you in Argentina in june.
From the parents - Wednesday, 20th April 2005, 02:30 (GMT)
Hi Matt
Great photos v.mediteranean and spanish colours aren't they.Have you actually swallowed that drink? and survived? Maybe combine the drink and Ferg's dog handling suggestions to subdue Ralph (and then perhaps he would...)
Keep the messages coming so we can continue to live our lives vicariously Love always Mum
The drink is actually very good. Its a whole meal in a cup.
From Dannielle - Wednesday, 20th April 2005, 04:14 (GMT)
Hi Dorney,
Photos look awesome!
(scary looking dog)
Say G'Day to Pish for me and take care.....
Wardy
Will do. Dont you work too hard now.
From amy - Saturday, 23rd April 2005, 08:08 (GMT)
Hey dude the pics are great and it makes me jealous that I am not there experiencing it too. You will have to send more pics of the food so that I know not what to eat etc when i get over there. hope that you and pish are doing well and are planning your next adventure.
We finish the couser on the 29th and will then head north. Should be fun, and will keep you updated. I havent run into any food that i havent liked yet.
From mum - Tuesday, 26th April 2005, 10:50 (GMT)
Hi Matt
We were wondering what you were up to, sounds like fun.Now of courde you have to go and see the real David i Italy.
We had the races weekend here and I actually came home with some money - a personal best for me. Nick sent a text to say he'd arrived in Turkey but had to get to gallipoli - haven't heard since. How are you travelling to Bolivia etc? How is the public transport? Stay well and we look forward to the next installment. Ferg should know a bit more tomorrow Mum xx
The buses in chile are great. Im not sure about in bolivia though. I think there are a lot of truck instead of buses in bolivia. I guess well soon find out.
From nick - Monday, 9th May 2005, 15:47 (GMT)
hey mate, just got back from turkey, extended the trip to two weeks, awesome. will get some photies up asap. looks nice over there, say gday to pish, take it easy..
Are you still thinking of heading over this way?
From Matt Seve - Tuesday, 10th May 2005, 00:36 (GMT)
Are you writing this all by yourself? In all our time at school I never saw you write this much! All sounds good though! Take it easy.
I think i should have got a warmer sleeping bag off you mate. Im looking forward to getting into that amazonian region of bolivia. Bring on the warm weather.
From GREG O'C - Tuesday, 10th May 2005, 01:06 (GMT)
I envy you mate it sounds like a great adventure.Dont be concerned about your writing you give a great snapshot of what it is like.Its a great read and we look forward to your next one.
PS how are the south american women ?
From Zoe Turner - Tuesday, 10th May 2005, 12:14 (GMT)
Hey Dorns,

Sounds like your having a very very good time! Troy and I have moved to perth and have a great little terrace in Subiaco right near the oval which is very convenient. Still haven't got a job but have been madly looking for a job in the banking world. If no luck by the end of this month I will study again in a course starting next month. We think we will have a year hear and then head to Canberra near home.
Anyway I hope you are well.
Take care and well keep in touch. Cheers Zoe
From mum - Thursday, 12th May 2005, 09:36 (GMT)
It all sounds fantastic matt. Just imagine how extraordinarily fit and fabulous you'll feel when you can actually get a usable lung full of air.I agree with Pish about the education bit.Keep the news coming we love it
hugs mum
Dad says it's still as dry as a chip-perhaps not as dry as what you've seen! Take care

From mum - Tuesday, 24th May 2005, 10:33 (GMT)
Hi Matt
What a fantastic way to spend 3 weeks.Still can't get used to not being able to text or ring ad lib.Glad all is well and the adventure continues. Have you checked your e mails? Dad says as he always does now "it's dry as a chip"
