The Old hotel...
    Well I would love to be able to write a thrilling story about surviving the hurricane, and how I swam out to rescue several children and a sea turtle, and how we all got together and prayed while drinking whiskey and wine under the sub basement of the building, but, perhaps for the best, the hurricane kind of missed us.  Eric swore that at 1230 it was pretty bad (I was reading in bed at that time, and I didn't notice it being particularly bad). This was on the way to a dive site, and the captian of the boat said, in reply to Eric:   'hurricane was pree' bad last night .....'ee' only e're hurricain' was like daa...HUR-A-CAIN HAH HAA HAHA!, ee' was n'but a beet of rain and breeze...hur-a-cain my ass'.  He continued mocking everyone he got the chance to, especially the huricane itself 'ee' canna blow o'er a teen can.
Again...
..hur-a-cain...hah!'  Anyways, Eric did admit that if we did get the brunt of a Cat5 we couldn't dive for about a week after due to the limited visability. Seeing as the storm did bring a Portugese Man-O-War in to shore, really rare and really dangerous, perhaps it was better we didn't go out till the afternoon. 

    I have my PADI Open Water certificaiton now, it's actually very easy to get, and they try to sell you on all kinds of other courses too, naturally, but I have limited time and really need to get moving, so I am going to say goodbye to Utila for now, and head inland.  It's really easy to just 'stay for one more day' but I did my 2 free fun dives today, saw Sting Rays, and figured that I had better clear out or else I'll end up like all of these Divemasters here, who come here for a week, and then learn to teach diving so they can stay. It's so tempting sometimes, but I still think my calling is in a hostel or restaurant....at home or abroad....So, I'm off to Copan tomorrow, seven hours on a bus with who knows how long between during the connections.  I'll talk to you all soon I'm sure, and in the mean time don't forget to write!
