After a heavy night of triple gin and tonics, washed down with Tiger beer, I did the schoolboy error of not dropping panadols before I went to sleep. In the middle of the night, my head was screaming, so I did the only thing I was capable of. I dropped three. I didn't sleep much more, which is nothing unusual. I am over the jetlag, but it is fucking hot down below where we sleep. The rocking of the boat is relaxing however and there is all the great diving that we have done and more to come. During the day, we had a turtle come and swim alongside the boat, so we stopped and loads of people started swimming with it. It's little head kept popping out of the water, which bought us to Karsten's word of the day. The Turtle Head. Explaining it was easy, thankfully there was no photo from Dave today, but I am sure you can all use your own imagination.
