Wow! Palau!

... the stinging cells are so tiny, their sting is not detectable on most human tissue, so tourists can enjoy swimming with them much closer than would be possible anywhere else. So, we swam with the Jellyfish and it was incredible how many there were. You could not move with out touching one, so you just float and try not to hit them. It was the coolest, creepiest thing EVER! At night, the jellyfish descend into a layer of hydrogen sulfide which is found below 15-20m of depth. SCUBA ...

Chandelier chambers and blue holes

... further away dive sites, the reef hooks, the rental equipment,... .   We also say bye to our hotel and the dodgy internet place: the Rock Island Café.  We were glad to have internet access. But: it is expensive. We drink their beers and eat their food but we still pay for the wireless. It is not that the food is that good: my lasagna the last night is not even hot.  If a cook cannot even serve you warm food!   Pick-up tonight at 23h30. It is NOT going ...

Breath taking: from the air for a change

When we arrive at the dive shop, Steve has news for us: we are going to the jelly fish lake, after our 2 dives. For me, 2 dives a day is enough. And we made it clear, we did not want to go to jelly fish lake. It gets worse: one does not dive there; one snorkels. Wait a minute: I hate jelly fish and I hate snorkeling and we need to pay 70 bucks extra for that? They can also dump us on a beach and pick us up an hour or 2 later. No, we cannot be ...

The most dangerous dive site in the world

In case you are planning to come to Palau: a couple of websites. Yesterday, we had a day off. Did not do much. We looked for an internet café, mentioned in the Lonely Planet. As often before: Lonely Planet is outdated. We do find a hotel with wireless: http://www.palasia-hotel.com/en/hotelIn troduction/hotelIntroduction.asp Veeeeery weird: full of Japanese men ...

No pictures for a while since ...

... It does not appear on the surface either. We were diving a wall, 250 meter down. My Hubby is great as usual. He is sad because my new year's present is gone. But goes: ah well, ... . Does not get angry, nervous or blames me. We quietly sit out our surface interval and go for our second dive. It is weird without camera. Bob, our only dive mate, offers his camera if we want to do a land tour. Big expensive Nikon! Tomorrow, we have a dive break. No plans.

We dive nr2 of the top 100 dive sites of the world

... I cannot believe it. My Hubby gears up our equipment. We sail by the 'islands'. They are really more like atolls. Inhabited, overgrown by trees and the bottom is eaten away by the corrosion of the water. By low tide, a boat can fit under there. It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life! Prettier then Pang nga, James Bond island in Thailand. The speed boat takes almost an hour. And: the Blue Corner deserves its place in the top 100. Giant groupers ...

... saw some basalt monoliths known as Badrulcha. Their originin and purpose is unknown but ledgend says that they were put here by the gods to protect the local people. On the drive I got to see the capital of the country and the building there looks a lot like our White House! While I was there the tv show Survivor was just ...

Yapping

... to the hotel was wearing nothing but a small sarong! Pretty much everyone here constantly chews the nuts from areca palm trees (known as betel nuts). These large seeds are consumed much like chewing tobacco, give a mild buzz, stain your teeth and saliva red, and seem to be rather habit-forming. So despite the invasion of the modern world, Yap manages to hold onto some elements of its traditional ways The Yapese stone money (known as "rai") can be as large as twelve ...

Recap of the trip

... guys did and that's how you get the pictures by having your hands free. Palau has over 200 rock Islands, and a couple have salt water lakes, this one is very popular as it contains millions of non toxic jellyfish and it's a great break from diving- you hike into the lake and snorkel around with all this creatures. Jelly Fish Lake Peleliu is a Palauan Island about 1 hour 45 minutes from Koror, this was the site of a huge WWII battle for an ...

... rock islands. We found our bus to get to the hotel. We had to take a ferry but it was very slow. We finally arrived though in the lobby we had some pineapple juice. We had a lovely view from our room. Ardie and I went swimming. We lounged around, ate dinner, then went to bed.
