    ... L had I met him at a dinner party, but after you fend off drill after drill with a man, you can't help but feel brotherhood. Another reason why the course was so hard is I'm not used to technical diving equipment. The amount of redundancy built into a technical diver's equipment is impressive, but it takes time to get used to it. The rig lives up to the saying "two is one, one is none". You have 2 tanks, 2 regulators to breathe from and an isolator to shut the ...

    ... we learnt that it was a totally new complex recently constructed on the Riviera Maya shore.

    ... the band burst out with a rousing rendition of 'tequilla,' and all the waitresses poured out from behind the bar with free shots for everyone. Things got a little fuzzy after that; I do believe the tequilla in Mexico is stronger than the rest of the world. But everyone in the group seems really cool and we get on well.

    The following morning, I caught the ferry over to nearby Playa Del Carmen to check out the BPM festival, an annual beach ...

    Today, I swam with dolphins. I've done sea lions and sea turtles before, but nothing quite as curious and fun to interact with as dolphins. They're the sea equivalent of sheep!

    We did the Dolphinus - a company we work with - 45 minute tour which includes petting, kissing and hugging the dolphins, a foot push, dolphin jumps, and more. A great experience!

    In the afternoon, we went to the neighboring park: ...
