25 June 2011:

A view of the dorm I stayed in. I wonder if anyone was ever accidentally locked inside since the door is locked by a padlock on the outside. I met a few new arrivals, including an Australian geologist who worked in Canada piloting a helicopter attached to a giant metal detector. Seems like exploration geologists get to go to a lot of interesting places. In the afternoon, I went for another snorkel at the Blue Lagoon with the geologist, were I dove down deeper and found some weird large pouches that closed when I fan water at them. I also sent a postcard from the resort, which looked very fancy.
