More than a month into the five I will be spending here in Maldives and I've got to see a bit of life under the surface - figuratively and quite literally as I am learning to SCUBA dive, but more of that in a future post.
There is plenty of political stuff going on, but I won't comment on that. Google it if you are curious.
A welcome discovery has been the local lads who are doing their bit to keep traditional Maldivian music alive. ...
... back and changed after Jess tried out her mermaid tail. The pool has fiber optic lights in it that make it look like a starry night which is great because we see thousands of stars.

My plan for the evening is looking into options for our second hotel here. This one is fine, but we are tempted by one of the all-inclusive resorts- here, we have to pay so much for each meal, each trip to the beach, each snorkel mask rental, that it seems like it might be just as cheap to stay somewhere nicer that has all that included... we shall see. Good night all!!!
