My days and weeks are unbelievably long.
Our team start our days at 6:30am with a staff meeting. As soon as I arrive at work, I help carry huge tanks back and forth to the parking lot, prepare our equipment and prepare all necessary paperwork BEFORE coffee!
Once our staff meeting is complete, we have about 30min to drink coffee and eat breakfast before our customers arrive.

We go home when our work is done, which is generally around 6pm. I have one day off a week, but depending on how busy we are, I have worked without a day off.
Today is my 11th day of work.
I must say, it is tiring.
But I would choose this any day over my 9-5 office job in a cubicle!
I will gladly give up my one-hour lunch break, 8-hour work day and paid vacations for the life I now have :-))))

Long-awaited reunion with Jo finally came last week when she came to the mainland from Lembongan. She is also working as an instructor there and doing well. It was such an emotional moment when I got to see her and hug her!!! We definitely have a special bond.
I really wish I could see her more often. Our inconsistent work schedules don't really allow us to meet up too often...

My friend Fon that I became close with in Thailand is coming to Bali to see me and dive with me next week. So excited for that reunion as well!

I realize that I don't get to update this blog much these days but my dear family and friends - I am happy and well. I couldn't ask for a better life :-)

I guess we couldn't ask for anything more for you!
(I should add, however, that I check back daily to see if you've added any entries...)

My dear,
I am so sad.
You may be going to lose something in too busy time.
How I and your dear friends can know your interesting Bali life?
Even once a month or two month, you should say hello in this blog.
This is your obligation!
