Mission to Jordan, Day 5 (see previously 9.264 Lots of Chicken, Loads of Rice) – personal deviation.

In Aqaba.  Previously in Amman to attend a Meeting of the Regional Parliamentary Working Group on Universal Health Coverage in the Eastern Mediterranean Region – Tue to Wed.  Staying on in country for a couple extra days to dive in the Red Sea.

Staying at and diving thru Arab Divers.

The diving was awesome.  Having grown used to diving in the Philippines, I was struck by the different topography, different structures, different colors.   And the wrecks – not historical, recently scuttled just to give tourists something to look at, but still very cool.

Interestingly, the desert air was so hot and arid that gear would dry to a clean crisp in between dives.

Countries where I’ve dived:

  1. Philippines: Anilao (5.167 Steamed Lapu Lapu…), Puerto Gallera (pending)
  2. Fiji: Nadi (5.180 Mahi Mahi with Snake Beans…)
  3. Maldives: Male (pending)
  4. Malaysia: Kota Kinabalu (pending)
  5. Jordan: Aqaba
