Perhaps, he was training for "Open Air" certification.

During Thanksgiving weekend Chase, Paul, and I did our Open Water Dive certification at Barra Beach. Thanksgiving was hardly the festival it was last year. We had granola from Marie Katrib's in Grand Rapis, MI with bananas for breakfast, eggs and toast with mangoes for lunch, and beans and rice for dinner. The rest of the week was packed with aquatic life including painted anglerfish, crocodile fish, trigger fish, lion fish, porcupine fish, oriental sweetlips, juvenile sweetlips, Solander's toby fish, shrimp, blue spotted rays, undelated moral eel, marbled octopus, white-tip reef shark, and a manta ray. Apparently, Team Mohundro is the luckiest (talented and good-looking) groups ever because we saw a shark and a manta ray during our four day training. Hopefully, this sort of team work, or team luck, will carry over to our journey up to Tanzania next week.
