Feliz día de San Valentín (Happy Valentines Day)
We celebrated by taking our first dive as PADI certified open water divers.
Lead weights used to help control buoyancy and trim. Some weights are placed in shoulder pouches of your BCD (buoyancy compensator device) vest and others in pouches at your waist. The old style dive belts with lead hanging from them aren’t used much anymore. The integrated BCD weight pouches are safer and more effective for weight distribution/trimming.
Along the way
We were on the outskirts of hell today and below is the picture to prove it. It was so hot walking home from the dive it felt like our clothes were being flat ironed right on our bodies.
Nothing says I love you like splitting a hot dog from a street vendor for Valentine’s supper. Romantic, sitting at this little stand right there on Avenida 30. Out there for any of the whizzing by scooters to hit us. 🙂
We’ve been walking by this hot dog vendor every night since we got here. He always has a line waiting for food.
We had ‘The Works’. A nice, toasted hot dog bun, slathered in mayonnaise, grilled hot dog wrapped in bacon, mustard, giant squirt of hot sauce completed with a heap of grilled onions. Divine!
Hechos Graciosos (Fun facts)
My fingers looked like moral mushrooms after getting on the boat from the second dive.
We know how our fingers shrivel up when wet, more research is needed to validate why.
