And on day eight, it finally happened. We lost two people. Never before in all of humanity have we seen a German woman cry, but Meike proved that she is human after all. Karsten and Meike left us as they had to go home. It saddened me very much as during the day, they had been my lookout. I am now having major problems when I equalize, so I warn them, watch out for me. They sat there during the first two dives, as I made it down and then up. At lunch, a little boat came and took them away. Straight after, we went in. I made it to seven metres before I signaled to Fred that I could not get down, so I was picked up by Eeeee and Ying and I sat there bleeding and waiting for the group to return. Once they were up, Lucy bagged me. She was so worried that she couldn't see me, that she missed the Eagle Ray. The only way to console myself was to drink gin and tonic. As Fred wasn't doing the last dive, he joined me. Two old timers, reminiscing about the old days on Koh Tao. Quite boring actually. No more English lessons and no more gin. Will I survive the next two days? I am actually worried because my ears and head scream, whilst my nose just bleeds constantly. I just keep reminding myself, as long as it's my nose and not my ears, I will be alright !!!
