So, this picture is back on Ton Sai beach. This is my good friend, Neao. I met him while I was waiting for the taxi-boat to Ton Sai. I spent a lot of time with him while he taught me some of the Thai language.
Jason: "Do you climb?"
Jason: "Cool. That's a good hotel. Put down your bags over there, and then let's go climb the Groove Tube."
You might also wonder why Fidi is wearing a Native American headdress in this picture. Ton Sai is a really silly place with lots of toys laying around. I think that's why I like Ton Sai so much: People are just there to have fun, and everyone is super accepting of you no matter how silly you are. This attitude encourages you to do whatever you want to do and not to worry about people thinking negative thoughts about you. When I wasn't climbing, I spent my time on Ton Sai doing a lot of hula-hooping and swinging around balls of fire.
Anyway, I'm spending the next few days doing this advanced diving course, and I hope I'll be posting some pretty fishy pictures soon! Diving is such an amazing thing to do, and the underwater world is such a perfect place to be, so I hope I can share some of that with you. Tomorrow, I'll be spending the entire day on the boat - We're starting in the morning, and then we're ending at night after taking flashlights into the water and checking out the night fish. I can't wait!
