Have you ever seen Thai people ride bikes on Koh Samui? If not, then you're missing a lot. They drive around the island with children and dogs on their laps or with bird boxes and flower tubs in their hands, or with fired up stoves or six-meter boards and bamboo tables.
"Open Water" is the name of the first level of diving.
This book was written in the spirit of the travel writing with elements of comedy, black comedy and it also includes a "diving manual" for the dummies.
