Uncle Bertissimo responds:

   Hi Tutto, my firm ones,

   I am ecstatic I eat customary to put under the enthusiastic
   relationship of the vulcanico consortium of sustentation, that grows
   for pulls and limits.

   Plan to be in Mexico shone upon over April 17o and following Dessa
   the fine week, and turn over on the ventisettesimo one of the climes
   merciful of Guatemala.

   No matter who, who wishes to astonish us with an aspect by cameo during
   this time will be festooned with the local shrubbery and others you
   leave of the bicycle.

   The impulse of the possum becomes loose through my veins with pleasing
   delight.

   his affectionate Onkelbert


Err... we'll whaddyaknow!  My Italian alter-ego.

Anyway, after a few pints with Dessa and Scotty, we're aiming for the
17th April till the 28th.  Gene reckons the first week in Mexico, and
the second week in Guatemala.  We'll be getting tickets this week and
will let you know what we find.

For a festive time, type possomery in a Yahoo search.

I found one subwhelming picture of Hekla at 
http://www.mbl.is/

Bjarni, please do a Gene and post some museum-quality shots of Hekla.

Cheers,

Yer luvin Uncle Bert |-)
