A little update on life in Playa...

Party, diving, playa...

There’s been a while since I’ve written... I’ve been working on the Norwegian one for a while, but now I’m back here.

The days fly by in paradise… I cannot believe I’ve been here for over a month already! At the same time I feel so at home here, almost like I’ve always been here.

A normal day is going to tourism and Spanish lectures, the beautiful white beach, maybe meet up with some girls for lunch. Last week I had a manicure and a pedicure =D Me like! Rosario did my nails, while we were babbling about Mexico City, where she is from. Life is wonderful in Playa del Carmen hehe… ;) ;)

My big plan is to go to Mexico City in the end of October, when we had one week off. I really want to be there for the day of the dead. 23 million people live in Mexico City… Holy shit!!!

The weekend after the first week back in school hopefully Ill be going to Cuba. Ill have to check my money situation ;)

Friday a week ago I went diving! It was so fun to dive again! Havent done that since I was 14? 6 Years ago... hm.. seems its not only the days that fly by ;) We were 6 girls : Grete, Pia, Line, Marte and me. Fist we had a course in the swimming pool

This was a refreshment course for Ida and me, we have Open Water Diver, and totally new learning for the other 4 girls. After training in the swimming pool, and some theory we headed for the boat. We lay anchor? Never written that sentence in english before...

Oh well... we lay anchor about 10 minutes from Playa del Carmen. I was the first of us girls to go in the water. I waited at the bottom (about 10 m) with a girl from the dive shop. I remember I noticed one blue fish that was swimming around all alone… Cant really explain the feeling, but it was very peaceful.

It was so fun to dive again. I will defiantly go diving again some time soon. Our second dive was another 10 minutes with boat. The first dive was a bit chaotic, but the second one was a lot better. Everybody was more relaxed, and better at keeping an eye on theyr “buddy”. Pia was my “buddy”: ) We saw fishes in all kinds of colors, a big eel, and corral reeves.

The feeling of being weightless, moved nice and easy in the sea is so wonderful. It really is an whole other world.

Dancing on the bar at The Tequila Barrel!
Everybody who has been there, has at some point ended up dancing on the bar. Could it have a connection with all the free shots you get there… ?
