Last night (Thursday) was one of the heaviest rain storms yet. Thunder and lightening accompanied by sheet rain left a few rooms flooded and a restaurant closed. Several members of the team left early to travel to the mainland to visit the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza. The site is one of the seven wonders of the world and a must see if you are in the area.
Some of the students went into the local town to buy presents and others toured the island, whilst the remainder relaxed by the pool soaking up the sunshine. Some of the students enthusiastically joined in all the games and activities that were put on by the hotel, which included volleyball, water polo, water aerobics, chess, table tennis, etc. The water aerobics was harder work than I thought it would be!
The trip has been every bit as successful as previous years diving trips, which is no small part due to the behaviour and enthusiasm of pupils and parents who got along with each other extremely well. The planing for next year has already started - see you all then.
We would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all of the students who completed PADI qualifications this week (over 20), including PADI Open Water, PADI Advanced Open Water, Drift Diver Speciality and dSMB Speciality to name a few.
There has been plenty of laughs and some thought provoking conversations during the trip, but we have decided to sign off with the 'riddle of the week'.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 5 duck sized horses??
