... At first I was clueless about people on this Island but I discovered their hearts' investments in this facility. I was assigned room 101. The air conditioner worked & a mini fridge was in the room. The room was sufficiently private where my laptop and personal items didn't require special handling.
The bath area was tactfully clean and the towels, cloths & soap were provided by facility keepers. I took any of my concerns to Sir Nelson & team. They did their best to address them. For example:
(1) the water pressure was low and I was initially without hot water. This was resolved within two days and there was hot water for the remaining 10/12 days.
(2) transportation to ATM(s), initial shopping and my final transfer to Honiara for $75 SBD instead of $100 SBD, were all managed by the facility's staff members. I was more than happy to provide dollar contributions for what they were willing to do.
(3) after the first week and among similar efforts as above in #2, i had a chat with Elizabeth and Raewin about ordering, meal deliveries. Once we did the math, Elizabeth coordinated the purchase and preparation of fish, rice w/veggies. Plus, there was a for another meal. There were always bottled water dispensers available with refills. I was satisfied having hot water for green tea, ad lib.
Before & after walks, I managed to refresh in areas of decompression theory, physiology, physics, equipment, and general science for scuba divers!!!
