We just received news that one of our guests Mark Thorpe won a first prize at the 34th World Festival of Underwater Images in Antibes. Congratulations Mark!
Mark produced a short underwater film from the video footage he took when he stayed with us in Lembeh in July 2007 (click here to see Marks previous blog). As Mark said in his email to us, “My short film called The Majesty of Muck must have struck a nerve with some of the judges as it was awarded the Prix du Public.”
Mark sent us this picture of him with his award at the prize giving ceremony, standing on the right with overall category Gold Palme winner Danny van Belle.
Mark will be sending us a dvd so guests can see his work when they visit us, and you can see more of his work on his own blog by clicking here.
We just received these new links:
* Dave Martin’s trip report of when he stayed and dived with us in Sept 2007.

Congratulationds to Marije from Holland who became our sceond ever Master Scuba Diver (MSD)!
Marije stayed with us for 3 weeks and completed her Rescue Course and 4 specialties – Deep Diver, Night Diver, Wreck Diver and Search & Recovery Diver (she already had Nitrox), and with 350 dives she was definitely over the minimum limit of 50 dives required for the MSD.
