Journal Entry:
Woke up in the middle of the night with my ear throbbing and still generally feeling like shit. I managed to get back to sleep and when I woke up I felt a little better but my ear was still aching. Luckily I'd arranged to spend the day out of the water. So instead of diving I got to spend the day in the class room - but we did finish off the lectures from the Dive Master book.

Mick (our instructor) was gone for the afternoon so Stacy and I had a long lunch at Aladdin's and then went book shopping. We spent the rest of the afternoon studying for and then taking the diving physics test - I missed several due to not checking my work, but I still passed.

We had several beers around the pool barm - Cess and Jo were leaving so everyone was there to say goodbye. After a lighter crape dinner I called home. After talking to Amy I really started to feel much better. Then had a final beer at Nesima's roof top bar before heading to bed.
