Diving in Togo
Today I dived for the first time in Togo. The difference between the ports in Togo and Benin is like chalk and cheese: Togo's port is relatively clean and garbage free - no plastic bags, no poo poo, no fishing boats dumping garbage, and no small ships dumping garbage (but less fish. Huh.) The water is so clear that I could see light from the other side of the ship, and that never happened in Benin (we needed flash lights and a compass to find light there!). But this berth is quite shallow; whilst cleaning one grate I was able to stand in the silt on the bottom. Good dive though. Olly.
