Toyama-ken JET Party Down Good Times!

First things first. I got a shout out on Jim Davis' blog...the one running for governor of Florida, not the guy who draws Garfield. Vote for Jim Davis! Last time I checked, the League of Conservation Voters gave him an environmental score of 100%. If you are a product of the Florida public school system (like me) and don't know what that means, trust me when I say that it is good. Very good. Great. Florida needs a governor like Jim, someone who understands that our environment IS our economy in Florida.

But enough about politics...

The trio of teachers has arrived!

Yesterday I took them to get their drivers licenses so that they would be able to rent SCUBA gear at the local price.

After some shopping at Joeten we hit up Obyan Beach for some diving!

We saw some fish, 3 crown of thorns starfish, some bleaching, and a whole lot more fish.

Diving was followed by dinner at Aoi, the Asian buffet at Saipan Grand Hotel. The buffet only costs $12 on Wednesday and it includes, drumroll please, FREE DRAFT BEER.

After dinner, those of us not working for CNMI PSS went to Godfather's to listen to the Brown Republic Band, the greatest cover band in the Pacific Rim. That's right, I'm not afraid to say it.

Every time I see them play I keep request that they play a Hanson song. They keep telling me that they don't do Hanson....and they call themselves a rock band.

Beer and music at Godfather's was followed by beer and pool at Ocean's. I had my ass handed to me, but I'm OK with that. I still had a good time.

The dive shops won't rent to you if you aren't local. If you aren't local they force you to pay for a guide. The driver's license will save them a lot of money.
