Hola chicos!

Que tal? Esta semana fue de poca madre (genial)! The sea is even more impressive than I could imagine it! The reef finally revealed some of its secrets, my diving squad and I got the privilege to meet a giant friendly green turtle! With my bionic eyes I was able to distinguish the circular camouflaged shape at the foot of the reef! I wanted to follow it in the deepness of the ocean to learn more about my new friend but unfortunately my dive profile was limited to 18 meters so I had to say hasta la proxima. I'm pretty sure I heard the turtle mumbling nos vemos pronto amigo!

To add a bit a spice on the base, we started a long term game called Gotch'a or Assassin. Everybody picks a person's name in a hat. The goal is then to ''kill'' your victim by whispering gotch'a in his ears. But be careful, no one must see you or else it wont count! Everybody got a bit paranoid in the first days and stick in group to avoid being killed. Some players were especially good at attracting their victims in their spider web, so good that we even called one player the black widow!

See you next time (if im still alive...)
