The next day it was time to say goodbye to my
new australian friends as their week was over and they had to leave. Monday
I went diving with two southafrican women and we expected the new guests
monday evening. They didn't arrive though. In the night we had an earthquake.
My bungalow shook for about 10 seconds. Not a big deal... when I came to
breakfeast the next morning I asked whether the other guests had felt the
earthquake and I laughed when I heard that one of the southafricans hadn't
known what it was and she had taken a lamp and checked under the bed if
somebody was lying there shaking the bungalow.
Her friend had known what it was but didn't tell her because she knew that
her friend would have freaked out...
When the new guests arrived early on tuesday morning we heard that the motor of the boat had exploded when fortunately nobody of them was on board. So nobody was hurt except the motor... I had been told that a new dive guide from Manado (Sulawesi) would arrive with them and when I saw somebody walking over the jetty I thought 'Is that possible???' I went over to check and when I was close I said ''Handry???' He turned around and it was 'Aaaaaandreaa....' I knew him from my vacation in Sulawesi last year. If you check my the report from last year you will find a guide with dreadlocks. That was Handry. It was so much fun to see him again since I thought I wouldn't see him during my vacation.... small world.
I have only dive pics from two days and I finally spent some time in my hammock in the afternoons... Started to play around with my macro lense for my camera too...
