    ... the bottom of the cage and look out into the murky water at the shark bait, 2 large fish heads on a float, which the crew threw out and pulled back towards the cage. Plenty of fish were swimming in front of our masks and to our right there was a whole ball of fish feeding on the 'chum' being thrown off the back of the boat. We waited and waited bobbing up and down for about 30 minutes until the crew advised us to get out and warm up until a shark arrived. They joked that as soon ...

I think it shows how small the world really is, when upon a few minutes of meeting our driver for the day, we found that prior to living in South Africa, he had lived 10 minutes down the road from us at home.
