Journal Entry:
In the morning neither of us was that motivated to do a dive so we ended up heading to Tota for coffee and to work on the map (one of the last things we need to do to be done with our divemaster certification). Back at Nesima we hung out for awhile then had to pay for the last month - ouch! In the afternoon went for a fun dive with Stacy. We just jumped in the water at Nesima and followed the reef back to the bay. The dive was Ok. There was some nice coral and a decent sized eel, but nothing stunning. Afterwards I spent some more time on the Internet trying to find out about 3D mapping - I wanted to do our map on the computer but looks like Excel is going to be my only option. In the evening I went with Stacy to dinner at Sphinx. It was very disappointing - I won't be back. After dinner I hit the internet to try and find an access number for my phone card. I found one, but it seems that my account has been cancelled (I probably haven't used it in six months or longer...) I was trying to call home for my dad's birthday. After trying for an hour I gave up and called collect.
