Mermaids and other nonsense

It’s Good Friday and that means that there are no dive trips going out from San Pedro today. Why? Because local superstition says that those venturing in to the water today will turn into mermaids. How brilliant is that? I love it! People here are just so odd.

Talking of superstition…David’s baby is not feeling too good, so her mum is out looking for the hair of a woman who’s pregnant for the first time. The idea is to then cut off some of that woman’s hair and to tie it around the baby’s wrist. This is meant to cure the baby (I’ll suggest that she takes the baby to see a doctor today)

Anyway, happy Easter everybody!
