Monday 2nd December I spent all day with Jolyon learning about amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, turtles, invertebrates etc etc. It was fairly intensive training and Jolyon said I will be having a test on Wednesday to see how much I have remembered. I have been told I won't be sent home if I fail!!
We finished about 15.30 and I Iounged around until dinner time and then I attended the evening meeting which we all have to attend every week night at 19.30 except for Friday and Saturday. We do have a lady that comes in and cooks the evening meal except for Thursday. I went to bed fairly early as I had to be up and ready to leave at 7.00am the next morning for our three day trip to the Similan Islands to carry out a tourist snorkelling survey.
