Journal Entry:
I got woken up at 4:30 when the air-conditioning unit, which is above my bed, turned in to a waterfall. I tried to ignore it but it just kept getting worse. I pushed the bed as far out of the way as possible, and tried to go back to sleep. Ended up tired, then a little late to class due to breakfast (which is included so we had to try it). Both dives today were with the open water class - continuing with the confined sessions so nothing exciting. Between the dives I went with Stacy to the the Hilton over in Dahab City to get money out but the bank was closed. It's Friday and we were told the back was closed for 10 minutes so they could pray, but after waiting 45 minutes it was still closed. After the second dive we had more lectures then it was time for a very much deserved beers by the pool. There was a very nice orange moon-rise. After dinner, went back to the room to find the air-conditioning fixed (hopefully).
