Dear Friends,
This photo will be on a Greek Saturday's newspaper for a special article
about our adventure to Novo!
We'll discuss the article drinking coffee at the airport on Saturday!

OMG!
It's this day week!!!
How crazy is that!

Out local rag (the Limerick Leader) has asked us to
submit an article and photos when we get back.
These kind of events seem to stir the 'human interest' aspect
more so than any other.
Although my mate a work says to me today,
''so ye are goin' a half way round the world to just
watch the sun go dark yeah?,
Shur, I see that every night,
it's called the sunset!''


Um..
doh!
not the same...
ah well...
His loss.

So guys where and when will we meet up!?

I see there is a plan to meet at the Lennin statue
on Wednesday but alas we will not be there.

I'd like to meet up with all the members of the
'Novosibirsk Guide' forum and also 'dfnsk' the webmaster.

When are the Greeks heading out?
Where will ye be staying.

We all need to exchange contacts
and to have a back up plan if we need to
drive to a 'clear spot'

(I see this is also the reason for meeting at the
statue)

I'm hoping that if ye Greek lads are there that day that
we could meet up with ye whe we get over to get the
update?

Cheers,
