My trip to Egypt in 2010 – part 2
Today I was going to learn scuba diving in the Red Sea. I have never been scuba diving before as the diving equipment weighs 15kgs, that is 60 times my own body weight. But, my instructor ensure me that the equipment will be weightless whilst underwater, and he would help me jump into the sea with the equipment on. He said he will throw me off the jetty!
The equipment was heavy but I was keen to try out my new sport. It is a shame that they don’t make diving equipment for someone who is 30 cms tall.
I was glad to be learning in the Red Sea. The sea temperature was 20 degrees and had good visability. The Red Sea is home to many tropical fish and *ahem* sharks.
The coral around Dahab was nice.
After two dives, I was knackered with all this learning. So I went for a Egyptian Tea.
The scuba diving course was four days. I passed out with my open water licence thus becoming a qualified cuddly toy diver.
The next day, I needed a rest. So, I spent the day on the sun bed soaking up the rays.
I did looked cool with my Oakley sunglasses on.
The next two days, I was going to be trekking in the Sinai Mountains.
