Sting once sang about fields in Bali and Gold and shit like that, but he obviously has never been in a field of Titan Trigger fish. They are nasty bastards at the best of time. Huge with big beady white eyes. Yes, yeterday I was attacked by one, just for taking it's photo. It's not like it was a star and I was the papparazzi or something like that, but as we came acoss them, we all got down low, plus we were going into a strong current, always an added bonus, and we pulled ourselves along, little by little, just like Hilary as he was climbing Everest. No, fuck Hilary, more like the Uncle and Lucinate, as they made their way across the top on the Annapurna Circuit. Luckily, we lost nobody and we had no casulties. Karstan did a great job bringing up the rear, making sure that we all got through safely. Actually, it was more like Meike, as she is a lot stronger than he is. Typical of a good German Frau. One problem we have found is that on board, the Swiss and the Germans have trouble understanding us, so we decided to give them some English words that they didn't get. Annoying. How do you explain that one? The Titan Trigger fish are annoying, and as my German is limited to Ein mass bitte, Flughafen, Umleitung, Richtung and a few more words, it was kind of hard, but we did manage to get there in the end. Tomorrow, we will introduce them to some better English !!! Today we also saw a Manta Ray and it was so so beautiful. Majestic as it swam. It looked like it was flying in the water. I could have stayed there till my air ran out.
