Photo Adventures with Curiosity and Learning

May 10, 2009: Bintan Agro Beach Staff and crabs

How we came home including taxi from Tanah Merah Ferry Termina

Yesterday was a bummer. I managed to drop my underwater camera into the water here - but even with all the guys helping, we could not locate it. Here is early morning clouds and Sun Moon

A low tide morning - a time for me to make another search of the area to locate the camera

Wouldn't you know it - as soon as I turned a rock over, up pops a little hairy crab just looking at me

After no success - it was time to address success. I have promised Santi that I would do photos of her. Yesterday, in my depression over my clumsy dropping of my camera - I forgot to take their photos. They have nice new shirts - and so today - my mood was better and here are the photos of the reception staff

and Theresa and her Theresa smile. Theresa some times works in the Sea Sport with Florence and Lina. All these staff are multi-lingual to the point of embarassment of me. For example, Lina and Theresa speak Teochiu as well as Indonesian and English. Florence speaks Mandarin as well as Indonesian and English. I would like a bit of their language magic

I wanted something different than a straight line - so we tried this staggered organization

Here is the star of the day - Sina

And the three stars - Sina, me and Santi. Actually there is a small competition with this organization. This is Lina's favorite and so she and Florence introduced me to this presentation. I must say, I like it and to be surrounded by either Lina and Florence or Santi and Sina - what more can an old man dream of?
