First open water dives (Stone Town, Zanzibar)

I’ve made it and more importantly haven’t drowned.  First two dives completed – first one 45mins long at 12mtrs was at the Bawe Reef.  There was some lovely coral and saw lots of fish I had no idea what they were!  The second one was at a site called Great Northern again 45mins long at 11mtrs deep.  This one was great it was an old ship wreck with lots of fish and coral on it.  Was quite beautiful and apart from scratching my knee on a bit of coral and getting seasick on way back, it was great.  Could believe how tiring diving was though – I was shattered at the end and my hamstrings are really tired – so I had to have a bit of a siesta afterwards!  Leaving Stone Town tomorrow for Matembwe to complete the other two dives

Took a leave of absence from work and decided to work as a volunteer in Tanzania based in Korogwe, a small town in the northeast of the country (combined with some travels around East Africa). The project is to look at the cost base, strategy and business plan of a tree nursery NGO - one of the Gatsby Foundation projects.
