We have no idea how these local guys make money and afford to live as the conditions are terrible with water and rubbish everywhere, let alone the dirty smell. We feel like we are walking for ages with no success as we pass piers, bars and hostels along the water and still no waves. But in the distance as we get around another corner, we see a small swell and a few surfers bobbing out there. We get up closer and ...

... up everything we needed and would meet us back in time for our dives. By 2:30, 3ish we were all geared up and heading out to our first dive spot; the log. This was my first real ocean dive, so I was a bit nervous, especially for entering the water (we had to do a backwards fall entry). Even though I was nervous, my entry was pretty good and once in the water all my nerves disappeared. Diving is awesome, you can feel so weightless and as long as you stay calm, ...
