Finally some pictures with colors other than blue! 我的相片終於是彩色的了!

真不知道我哪來的福氣有這樣的朋友!

周三夜晚打來說周六去潜水——完全不知道是什麽地方。不過她的記錄很好,第一次安排去帛琉,第二次去東非,都很好玩,只要人出現就好,除了東非買機票時候讓我有點迷惘(原來東非是要飛去肯亞,但是肯亞的首都在哪裏啊~~)基本上只要負責玩,而且心得是愈不知道要去哪裏,愈不知道到底去是要看什麽,其實愈好玩;一切都是驚喜。

周四傳真刷卡買機票。

周五晚上大小姐竟然打電話來說身體不適,可能明天不去了~~欸,我一個人都不認識耶。那是要去幹嘛呀?!

周六早上九點的飛機,還好六點半時大小姐又决定她要出遊了。

I must have great merits to have a friend like this! Basically she does all the research, planning, travel agency contact etc. for some short-notice travel and it always turns out to be great fun! From Palau, Africa till the past weekend, all I need to do is to say yes to these previously unknown places. This time she called on Wednesday night to suggest going diving on Saturday in a place I don’t even know how to spell!

Nevertheless, it seems that the less I know about the place, the more fun I get. Lack of information, or more precisely, lack of expectation turns whatever encountered on the road into great surprise.

驚喜還是很多。

首先,在機場又碰到了在大堡礁船上遇見的台中潜水教練,臺灣潜水的圈子是有這麽小嗎?原來是這一飛機大部份都是當地推廣旅游招待潜水教練等前去考察的,所以,一般教練和團員比例是1:15,我們是25:1,有50個資深潜水教練,“菜鳥”好像只有我們兩隻。如是我們的安全指數暴增。

其次,因爲我們兩人都是早上起來行李亂包,所以我帶了很多沒用的東西。她帶了很多看似沒用的東西,但是最後都被我很好的使用了,像是不小心帶了一本看過的小說《被龍紋身的女孩》,被我讀得津津有味,還有仙貝(其實是一整袋的零食,第一次看到有人行李箱打開一半是吃的,還是用一個大手提紙袋裝的哦),下次要記得出來潜水一定要帶吃的…餓的時候真是什麽都是人間美味。

其三,因爲資深潜水人士可能沒有料到團裏會混進兩隻菜鳥,所以我們大大的娛樂了他們一番。我想他們平常帶團多半要稍微裝一下,現在難得可以暢所欲言,我們也算日行一善。

         同船的驚奇人士:“妳照相爲什麽要離那麽遠啊?”(我也不想啊~你以爲游得近還要停住是很容易哦?)

         某不在狀况內的別船人士:“奇怪,今天我好像看到下面有兩隻菜鳥…”(沒錯,就是有啦~)
         同桌吃飯的路人乙女教練:”有耶,粉紅色 fin 的,還有一個在那裏綁頭髮…”(頭髮鬆了不綁是要怎樣?不是應該讚我平衡很好,一手還拿着相機呢…)

         同船的善心人士:”妳好勇敢啊,我的學生這樣我都不敢帶來耶…今年才潜四次哦?”(是這一輩子只潜過四次啦)

         無數重複又重複的對話:
         熱心分享發現的教練們:“今天有沒有看到XXX?”
         我們:“XXX?XXX長什麽樣?”(所以我們學到了很多名詞,mola-mola 翻車魚、X港鯓、火焰花枝…)

The first surprise is that I ran into someone from the Australia diving trip in the airport. It turns out that probably the whole Taiwanese professional diving community was invited to do due diligence in Manado as part of their promo effort. Somehow we managed to get us into this supposedly professional group and became the only 2 inexperienced divers among 50 or so dive instructors. It’s hard to get any safer than this.

Of course, with so many eyes looking at you (not after you, since few people knew how green we are or simply can’t believe it), we soon become the laugh of the group. They must have forgotten those days when they have to look after beginner students:

        One guy in the boat: “Why you always took pictures from the distance?” (It’s really not up to me to chose. Only if I could get close while remaining stable…)

        Another guy at the dining table: “it’s strange. I think I saw two very green divers in the water…”
        A female instructor: “Yes, one with pink fins, right? Also the other one re-tying hair there…” (what’s wrong with tying my hair in the water?!)

        One very kind guy in the boat:” You two are really brave to come here. I dare not bring my inexperienced students here. You dive only 4 times last year? “ (No, 4 times in my whole life…)

Very proudly present some colorful photos! Thanks to the dive guide in Australia, finally my photos have more colors now – with the same mini Canon.
無論如何,至少我稍稍練習一下澳洲導潜的照相撇步,竟然用小佳能照出了彩色的水底相片,真是太感動了。凡事真的只要遇到明師,再加練習,就有可能!
