    ... The main reason for that was that I was sitting exams for the last couple of weeks for potential jobs with the UN and at the same time I have been working at a local dive shop getting my dive master certificate. I moved to Watamu on the coast of Kenya about a month ago, for wanting to get my dive master certificate with Steve Curtis.

    ... and during the night, but was the correct atmosphere, and yes, I know wine and me don’t agree, but seemed like a good idea at the time – got swept up in the moment LOL. The orphanage driver took us there through the bustling backstreets of Mtwapa and he kindly offered to come back and collect us. Good thing….
