I am sitting here in a small room with no fan and nor A/C to write these few lines. This is one major point which kept me from keeping you all updated during this first week. No WIFI here, so you have to plug in your Computer in the reception area. An as you can imagine it is not the fastest connection. Welcome to Maumere, Flores🙂
Let’s talk diving
We leave every morning at 7am or 8 am with a small fisherman boat to the different spots. Maumere is a wide angle paradise. We see reef sharks on almost every dive, turtles and a eagle ray passed by lately too! There is some macro stuff around but it is difficult to find it when your eyes focus on large gorgonian fans, sponges in different colours and other huge coral!
There are still places you can see the damage of the 1992 earthquake underwater but the reef has well devellopped since.
As you can imagine we are the only divers around. This is great!!!
Tomorrow will be our last diving day here with the people from SEA WORLD CLUB. We will go wreck diving.
Well the only moment I put on the macro lens is on the night dives. There is a much dive site here on the housereef. Lots of sand and rubbish and then millions of crabs and other sand critters.
I put some photos together straight from the camera without processing to give you an idea of Maumere underwater
