Journal Entry:
No more Medic First Aid lectures! Did a dive to the Usipa Point wreck (the deep dive I put off Monday morning). It was awesome. Saw some big catfish, including a mother protecting little ones living in the hold of the wreck. The wreck is just a 40 foot cabin cruiser that was intentionally sunk (it's graffittied with reminders to novice divers).

Back on shore enjoyed some free chocolate cake - a wager on a game of bawo last night. Went therough the Rescue Diver lecture on equipment which was slightly interesting. After lunch rescued peter a few times. Since MFA is over we got off fairly early - it's weird to have the afternoon to myself. I had my money and passport in the safe - predictably the other Peter, who has the key, was out on a dive so ended up stuck at the Scuba center for an hour anyway.

Done with all the Rescue Diver sections. All that's left is the test and the two scenarios. I was really ready to be done so I didn't even bring the book back with me - I know the stuff so studying wouldn't help - and I don't want to see the book anymore ayway.

Spent the evening reading (recreationally), had another piece of chocolate cake, then went back to Thomas's for diner - rice and beans again - and still good.
