Well it's been a while since I've been online, but there's not really too much new stuff to mention. Diving, beaches, parties. The usual stuff I guess. Almost got my Rescue Diver certification now. Work is going well. The other day I made over US$200 in one day working with girls in bikinis. I've had worse jobs.

I climbed Pic Paradis (424m) last week with Michelle. We ended up taking a wrong turn and had to hack our way directly up the side of the mountain, through cacti and over rock cliffs, hanging off trees etc. I was stung by wasps twice, Michelle 3 times. I had to scream at her to keep hanging on to the tree we were clinging to coz I could just see her going straight down the mountainside. Many times I wished I had a machete with me, whilst beating the trees and razor-sharp leaves aside with my legs, muttering not-so-complimentary stuff about Mother Nature under my breath. But we made it, walking out of there 3 hours later, feeling rather annoyed and scratched, but also relieved and very alive. What an experience.

Got a haircut yesterday. Weee.

The apartment is really cool. I've now got 5 plants on loan from JP & Lorna to look after while they travel to Canada and NZ, and it's looking very homely. I'm also enjoying the new stereo system, being able to crank up some nice house or trance beats rather than go crazy listening to reggae or soca or zouk or any of the other local styles.

I'll try and update this again tomorrow. Got a few photos to put up.
