You’ve got my number written on the back of your hand

Who was the group?

What’s happened since my last diary entry??, well quite a lot as it goes. Loads of practice for my Instructors Examination (IE) lots of dives for my Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT), clean up dives, (so much crap in the sea these days) I’ve passed my Emergency First Responder Instructors (EFRi) course, I’ve passed my Open Water SCUBA Instructors (OWSI) course, I’ve been smashed out my tree, I’ve been sick as a dog, I’ve shat me bed, I’ve lived loved and lost quite a bit 🙂 but the smiles are still here. My only regret is that I can’t download any footage of the reefs for the time being so my dad cant see what I’m doing (he was a diver way back when) and he would love to know that I’m enjoying myself.

Anyway, to the matter at hand. EVERY morning at 0415 a nice chap comes to his mosque and does the “Call to prayer” it’s lovely, it’s melodic and really beautiful (in a totally non race hate sounding way) the only crack in the cup, is that it’s speaker seems to be nailed to the outside of my window, right next to my head, turned all the way to eleven!!!!! I wake, (sometimes before he pipes up) wait for him to finish, then go back to sleep for a fitful two hours!!! Not to worry though, as the sun bleaches through my window in the morning, just behind the speaker, right next to my head, with NO curtains)

I never expected life to be given to me on a plate, but I never expected that plate to be speaker shaped, next to my head, (on a plus note, I found the remote to the air conditioning,, doesn’t work though) as I’m in the dormitory now, (I’m still in me single room) I’ve had a plethora of people moving in and out around me, a Polish couple (both men with a penchant for tight underwear in the morning) a German couple who were as regimented as only the Germans could be, and now seems to be an American girl (I don’t know if she has a partner or she has a split personality, because she only has a single bed and I’m hearing voices from her room when I’m having a shit)

So to sum up, I’m now a Diving Instructor, I live with fruit loops, and I am considering changing religion!!!!

To you all, just the ones I care about. (The ones I don’t care about, stop reading this and go and do something interesting instead) to be honest, I care about you all X
