I still don't feel like venturing to far from the toilet! so we take a short walk to a new fancy shopping mall, very unlike us! Very smart place, marble fountains, escalators and air-con.  Stomach greatly improved. Netty dishes up lovely meal of roast ... Read more >

Oh, oh. Matt's got a dodgy tummy! (stomach cramps - to much beer and peanuts yesterday, I reckon!) and the mozzies have been having a feast on us! Yesterday we phoned around to try to get a hire car for a couple of days, but what a surprise, there's ... Read more >

Slept quite well, considering we are on the main road and cars are speeding up the road all night and dogs seem to be everywhere. (Why do you never hear them, during the day?. Matt managed to sneak 6 cards or so, over for me, which was a nice surprise.... Read more >

Had a great night, last night, watching Chris's band practice with Karen and Joyce. Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, (considering I think we the only whites there!). Very cheap bar, (2 beers and 1 extremely strong rum and coke 3.40).  When the ... Read more >

Monday 13th Feb Out for 9 a.m. (Early start!) We go up the north coast, passing some beautiful beaches, right up into the hills and rainforest.  The roads are very dodgy in places, narrow with potholes, oh, and the odd landslip for good measure! Jean ... Read more >

Feb 8th 2012 Left Gatwick in minus 7 degrees.  A sad farewell to our wonderful friends, Tony and Magz (and a suprise visit from Lucy, the night before at the airport hotel, nice one guys!). An uneventful jouney, but quote of the day from the young ... Read more >
