Scuba in Vietnam!

Sunday February 20th – I was up early again, had an numerable breakfast at the hotel before heading to the dive shop!  I was joined by a small group from the united nations to dive with. We all piled into a van and made our way to the marina and our boat.  Coffee and snack on the ride out (about 45 min) we passing under the world’s longest over water cable car on our way.

Dive 1 - Madonna Rock

Dive 2 - Pipe Beach

The first dive included 2 caves, the first of which was very cool, as you enter the initial chamber I was greeted with a large school of fish illuminate from a small hole at the top of the cave.  The second dive was less interesting (did pick up a shell for my collection), but all-and-all a good morning and simply great to be out on the water, clear sky, light wind and 87 degrees.

We had a Russian, French, Dutch, Iceland, Sweden, Vietnam, South Korea, Australia, Taiwan and the American or as the Vietnamese call and an American “Mý” pronounced Meeeeee.

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
