Journal Entry:
Spent the early morning with the Medic First Aid class (video / lecture / practice). Late morning was spent with the Rescue Diver course. Talked about missing diver procedures, then Nicole and I had to get in the water. We did a search for a lost "diver" (a propeller) - which after a couple minor SNAFUs we found quickly.

During lunch I walked over and cancelled my ride to Blantyre. After lunch we watched some more of the Rescue Diver video. It was very weird, here I am ten thousand plus miles from away from home and there's Diver's Cove, one of my old beaches in Laguna!

Rest of the afternoon was spent with the diver recovery lecture and practice with unconscious / non-breathing diver recovery from both the surface and underwater. Late afternoon it was more MFA - which we finished! Hiked up to "Fat Monkey's" - an overlander's camp (currently deserted) for pizza with Nicole. It was pretty good but strange - there was no cheese! Played some more bawo then headed to bed.
