Journal Entry:
The customers for the first dive didn't show so I ended up spending the morning reading and talking. When Stacy had her lunch break from her first aid class I went with her to get something to eat. We went to the same place as last night, but it was disappointing - not nearly as good.

The afternoon dive was at Umm Sid. It was a very pretty dive, but not to exciting. There were two girls on the dive who caused the pace to be very slow. After the dive Stacy and I had a beer by the pool - where most of the dive staff seem to hang out after work. I spent an hour at the internet cafe - mostly chatting with Amy (she's slowly adjusting to being back home). I was craving one of their chocolate shakes so I went to Shark's for dinner.
