Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar have been in Greek jail for 81 days. In response to the support of fans, friends, and family the duo has written a letter to HelpIvanMartin.org to say thank you for helping them stay optimistic.
The handwritten letter has been scanned and can be seen on the front page of HelpIvanMartin.org. Dated November 22, it reads:
We would like to thank you for the ongoing support of our case. After tiring two months, it is important for us to hear ( well, read) words of encouragement and to learn that we are not forgotten.
We are treated well, but we feel we should rather be with our families than here.Your effort makes it easier to handle: We enjoy the postcards, community news, pictures and puzzles which are being regularly send by this website’s magnificent staff, It seem sit will take some time before we could return home and there is certainly much to overcome.
We do our best to stay optimistic and use this time well : we read we walk, we chat and discuss and martin even does some pt. we’ve already walked hundred of kilometers, read thousands of pages, but our thoughts are always with our families, friends and people who help us in any way.
We should also thank everyone who joined the petition! 14.000 signatures is truly amazing number, which makes us hope for the best regardless of the hardships.
With best regards, from windy Greece,
Ivan & Martin”
It could be some time until Martin Pezlar and Ivan Buchta can return to their home country of the Czech Republic. They are seeking aid from the Czech president to make their way home.
