Now there’s a blast from the past. Was it the specials? Dahab sports it’s own brand of special people indeed, I’ve met lots while I’ve been here, and they all sort of blend into one. Drunks, nutters, psychotics, idiots and just plain stupid folk are all of a muchness here. As the place is so … More The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The sun is steadily getting closer I’m sure, the heat has been cranked up a notch or two and looks like it will be out of control soon! A bit like the country, but that’s another story. Well I’m back in the mad house that is Dahab, and I couldn’t be happier really. Cairo wasn’t … More Away from the numbers

(Oddly enough, people get the hump when they are told its a dive centre not a hotel) with the IDC finished now and all the candidates (new instructors) … More Turning Japanese
It seems that the last couple of weeks have flown by for the Instructors Development Course (IDC) candidates. I’ve been out in the salty sea helping (and videoing) them, showing them the video (or SD card) and letting them criticising themselves! Oh there was a lot of criticising!!!!!!! But the training has now ended and … More Tomorrows just another day
