Hi dear new friends (this is all my english)
Un gusto haberlos conocido. Gracias por haber puesto nuestra fotografia en vuestro interesante diario. Tal vez volvamos a encontrarnos, será un verdadero placer.
Hola Carlos y Maria,

Da las gracias para anunciar un mensaje en nuestro sitio web. Parece mucho tiempo desde que estábamos en San Martin. Mañana visitamos la selva en Bolivia durante cinco días tan esto debe estar emocionando. ¡Mantenga mirando el sitio web y espera que usted lo goce!

Love Ian & Marge xx

what is this Bolivia story? you;ve done a good job of getting mum in a worry...dangling the carot infront of her nose. anyway it cant be life threatening as we have just got your message for Paul wishing him happy birthday. off for a week now so i'm off to think what i will do with my time...take care and try to put more pics up as soon as you can xxxxxx
Hi Tina
thanks for the message. Were you out last night when we left the message, where did you go ? I also left a message on whiteys mobile. We will put the piccies up as soon as we can, just having a couple of technical difficulties at this end. Enjoy your rest.

Loved the latest pictures, and have to agree with you Marge, Jesus is a looker. Not quite sure but suspect we'll both go to hell now......
On a lighter note, am extremely jealous of your tan, but where's Ian's?
Hi Al,

God weird I had a dream about you and Dave last night, then I come down here and find an email from you, very strange!
Glad that I have another fellow Jesus statue fancier!!
Don't worry my tan has really faded now, we have only a short time now to get me black again!!
Hope hopalong is getting better.
love me and ian x

Marg - more bikini pictures please!
She certainly will not, next time you see her she will be dressed like a nun!

From Richard & Debbie - Saturday, 18th February 2006, 03:05 (GMT)

Not sure why your complaining about the rain, at least it's warm - not like the stuff you get in Buxton. Don't mention howler monkeys to Debbie, she hates them - she didn't get any sleep when we were there - they live up to their name especially at 3am in the morning (not surprising their endangered). Pictures are brilliant especially Machupicchu, that was next on our list pre-kids unless your offer to house sit extends to looking after our two for a couple of weeks?. Nothing personal, but think I prefer Ian unshaved (pics of Lake Titicaca 2). Did you kow that the Bolivian Navy train on Lake Titicaca - why is this funny, Bolivia has no coastline.

Love Richard & Debbie.
Hello there,

No more rain for us, we are in Salta, northern Argentina now where it is lovely and hot, very beautiful place. Yeah I know what you mean about the howler monkeys, they were sooo bloody loud when we were in the jungle. We have loads and loads more pics of Machupicchu, we will bore you with them when we come home!
You will be pleased to hear that Ian has been shaved now for two weeks but we haven't put the pictures up yet.
Bolivians used to have a coastline but the chileans stole it off them, the countries haven't been friends since. We hate Bolivia!!

Love marge and ian xx

very worried about the forthcoming tale about bolivia -must be bad if you are not telling us until you have left !!!! no wonder you liked the monkeys - as you and ian are their relatives!!!!!!you a red howeler and ian a common yellow monkey !!!! am taking granny to wales on wednesay and thursday with tina - i have given your web site address to uncle tony and uncle ted and and they say they will post a message - take extra care now - ian look after my child !!!!
We are now safely back in the lovely Argentina, so we will post our Bolivia tale very soon. We are in a lovely lovely town called Salta in the north, really hot, beautiful colonial city, clean and friendly, with fantastic food and drink. Yeah the monkeys were fantastic. Have a lovely time in Wales and give granny a big hug from us both and tell her we miss her.
Lots of love me and e x

Happy new year to the two of you. Looks like you are having a ball and no surprises you are still drinking the cheapo wine!!!No doubt Ian will have heard Man Utd got beaten 3-1 by city and the pool beat spurs, we are one point behind with 2 games in hand! Going to the Pool vs Utd on sunday and hopefully it will be a better result than the last time Ian and I watched the football together (and yes my shoulder is still f*$%ed!! Maria sends her love
Take Care
Hi Rauri
thanks for the messaged. It is always nice toget a message from home. Yep, I am keeping tabs on what the boys are doing because I bought an e-season ticket before I left. I can watch all the prem games online. Really jealous about you going to the game but I cannot complain. I am only online now because I am goinf rafting and one of the guy is late. It is a grade 5, which is really tough. It has a 7m drop at the end !!!! I am cacking my pants. Marge is in bed with a hangover as we were out with some English people in a locals bar til 4.00am. NIce one.
Take care and love to the family. Ian

Wedding plans OK, everyone in my family is on a diet, met with a surgeon on Wed will tell you more when you are back. I'm OK about it have asked them to hold fire until after the wedding.... I love your diary you do make me laugh, you should sell this as a book when you get back! Hope you are enjoying it hun, be safe and take care. Missing you both... lots of love Natty xxxx
Thats exactly how my family were, all of us on a diet, I think that I was the one making the most effort though!! Suffice to say it was all a complete waste of time now because I am once again a big fat blob!
Don´t get too stressed out with everything.
love and kisses

From paul - Thursday, 12th January 2006, 18:56 (GMT)
Howz the rockstars doing doing these days? Wicked driveshaft shirt bud. I have a request for ya both, don't hurry home cause im saving loads of cash......mainly cause im 13 days off the drink. But thats not the reason why im saving money, cause im still buying beer for the fridge. Can you get me a picture of a guy on a donkey with a big moustashe . By the way you guys will come back to buxton a legend.......i've been to some kick ass parties at your house!!!!!!!
Hey Pauley,

You won´t see the driveshaft t-shirt out for a while as whenever Ian wears it he gets mobbed by screaming fans, it doesn´t help that he now has the designer stubble beard to match just like Charlie! Ian says he will put his beer-ritz order in a week or so before we come home, whenever that may be..We will try our best to find a picture of a guy on a donkey with a moustache, but if not would one of Ian on a horse with a beard do?!
love marge and e xx
p.s. we knew about the parties as Tom emailed us telling us how good they were - Bastardo!
From marmy - Friday, 13th January 2006, 15:54 (GMT)
seen some of your photos in the library in fishguard very good so far - the jersey cows are not jersey cows they are friesians !!! jersey cows are brown - silly billy - hope you are careful - you seem to be having a lovely time out there - makes wales seem a little tame really but we have to make do and mend I suppose - will write again when we are home and can have a look at all the photos properly - what country are you in now , still in argentina - take care love you lots xxxxxxxxx
Hi Marmy-in-law,
ít´s my fault about the cows. I don´t know a jersey cow from a liverpool jersey. I am looking after you daughter, although she is moaning about the camping a bit. It´s the damn moths you know, they have followed her all the way to Argentina! Had a disaster a couple if days ago when the ipod bust, caput! No more spanish lessons for me, I will just have to read my book which will not be half as good. Anyway, I am being nudged by Margie now so I will hand over to her.........hope you are enjoing wales....Ian......Mum I am not winging about camping AT ALL, Ian is exaggerating, little shite! Anyway hope you are keeping your grandchildren´s retreat spick and span as we are really looking forward to going in July - Yay. We are off to a place called Pucon finally in Chile tomorrow, so we will email from there. Have nice hols.
love and loads of kisses me and e xxx
