    ... and we were completely amazed and dazzled. We hope the video gives you a glimpse of the wonder we were lucky enough to experience. As previously mentioned there was a whole lot of wetsuit and other snorkelling paraphernalia; by the time we were fully kitted out it was only our lips and our hands that were in the open sea. It should come as no surprise then that L managed to get stung by a jellyfish, on her hand, the only skin surface exposed. When we slid out of ...

    ... though! We went down the back of the boat to see if they’d pop up there again, but at this point the boat started reversing and all the water came up on to deck and soaked my shoe!

    ... were created out of shipping containers. A surprising result of the earthquake was the soil liquefaction. This is when pressure from the earthquake destroys the strength of loose soils, basically turning it into a liquid sludge. This cannot support the buildings or roads on the surface.

    ... hour in the water playing with them before we were called back on the boat. We then had the chance to take some pictures of them socialising meaning playing around and doing tricks. Once we got out the water it seemed like the rest of the pod showed up and one of the guides said there was roughly 200 around us. Some swimming right next to the boat, some darting around. Then the acrobatics began. Backflips came out, front flips, belly flops, you name it. I can't quite remember ...
