The diving is quite different from ko tao for two reasons. first, the amount of marine life and the variation present just blows ko tao out of the water. there are leopard sharks, octopus, cuddle fish, pipe fish, shrimp, crabs, manta rays etc etc etc, all of which ko tao does not have. the second thing that makes it different is the presence of some really strong currents on these dive sites. you find yourself really struggling sometimes trying to keep your proper buoyancy and going in the proper direction. i faired pretty well but there were a few times where a giant coral encrusted wall seemed to swerve out of nowhere into my path.....damn corals.
in the end the trip was in essence a job interview and i passed. it is the beginning of the season here so its not in full swing so at the moment im pretty much just on call for when they need me. the next week or so i should be back out on the boat but this time being paid for it which is a nice thing. it will probably be a month or so before i am on the boat every trip but thats ok, it takes the body a little getting used to doing 14 dives in 4 days.
other then my fabulous trip, nothing too new going on over here. obama won the presidency so I can feel proud once again to be an american. the headline on "the onion" website was..........."holy shit we elected a black man". which was just too funny. for 4 days i was on the boat wondering who won the election...it was driving me crazy. well hope all is well in your worlds and that this holiday season isnt too big of a drag due to the economy. stay black and strong and we shall overcome.....just look at obama :)
