Today was the last, I made it. For all the words of encouragement that Dave gave to me, he died in the ass. Actually, he wasn't the only one. Quite a few people came down with some kind of illness in the last 24 hours. There was a lot of spewing being done, and when we awoke, Dave was dead. He wasn't moving. Just a few groans. Over the last week, he has actually turned into one big festering pussbucket. One of his feet, hasn't handled the fact that he is wearing fins all the time, and what started out as a little scratch, is now oozing. I love diving !!!!! For our last dive, Fred asked us where we would all like to go, and most of us asked for the wreck dive. As we now understand how to use a computer, we wouldn't fuck up this time. Once in the water, there was a really strong current, and it made the dive hard. There were no Moray Eels in the toilets this time. The visibilty was crap as well, but there is nothing like, dropping down, into the grey, and a wreck appearing. Quite mystifying, and all I can think is

Near far where ever you are. Fuck I wish I was Canadian sometimes !!!!! But then again, it makes me realise how lucky that I am not. I ask you, would you want Celine Dion as your national hero ?????

On the whole, World Wide Dive and Sail is a great company to use for a live aboard. Luckily for us, we have dived at Koh Tao and had met Fred and Alex in the past, plus we know a lot of their friends, so it was helpful. Dave was awesome in organising a group of people that got along. So, if you are ever in need of a live aboard, look up these guys, or if you need tickets/visas/anything when in Bangkok, look up Dave, tell him you know David and Lucy, and he will look after you, or, you could just join us on the next trip on board.

Believe me, you would not make a very good Canadian as you are nowhere near PC enough! Wait! You're not PC at all! Oh, and Celine is NOT our national hero!

Sounds like I hit a sore point there. I know your secret, you love Celine !!!

The only sore point are my ears every time I hear 'her' voice.

It's well known that cash can make us independent. But what to do when one
does not have cash? The one way is to receive the personal loans and just auto loan.
