Misool: Macro Heaven
<Deep Voice>: I'm Bat-worm. Our friend Lisa, whom we first dove with in Hawaii years ago and is now running an dive operation in The Solomons , calls divers who only want to look for nudibranchs, 'Nudi-Nuts'. I don't know if we qualify as Nudi-Nuts, but the...

What Sorong with you?
Rawr Insert collective groan here. Nope, not hitting the bottle early, though as they say 'It's 5 o'clock somewhere.' Just a little slap-happy waiting around in Sorong for our visas to be ready. Immigration opens again on the Thursday after New Year's, so t...

Mother's Day with the President
Our plan was to stop in Waisai for a day, buy diesel, and
then head over to Sorong. When we got to town, it seemed overrun by various

Mantas--they're like pigeons around here
We are definitely getting spoiled by the diving in Raja Ampat. Matt has joked that we should just sell all our dive equipment when we leave here. Conrad and his pet turtle. The little guy had no fear (I mean the turtle). Besides the fact that there seem to ...
