Rescue Certification

I have just finished today my MFA (Medic First Aid) and completed the PADI Rescue Diving Certification so I'm now officially qualified as Rescue Diver.
I'm quite happy that it is finished as it was starting to really get a little bit on my nerves and was not really enjoyable.

I wanted to originally go toward DiveMaster Certification but I'm putting that at the bottom of the pile. My goal is not to work in a dive shop while all other people here do and the atmosphere is somewhat special considering that they of course all intend to work on this dive shop... Did I mention friction ? Anyway.
Maher has been completely sick these last couples of days and is recovering. As he should leave around January 30, we will maybe do a dive trip to Ras Abu Galum together if he feels good.

I was thinking myself about also trying to dive the Thistleghorm (a wreck away from Sharm Al Sheikh) but I will see how it goes here.

I still do not have any picture. The infrastructure here at Dahab is not very nice on the internet field. There are loads of so-called cybercafe in Dahab but they do have in common to share a crappy dial-up connection with a network ranging from 4 to 10 clients.
