Geyser 2006 ...
10 years later, the same team of "fish counters" ...
The coral seascapes almost as beautiful ... but almost more sharks, giant groupers and other predators, no.1 fishing targets ... and more fearful fish too ... feeling of having lost something, like a part of childhood and dreams too ...
Above the reef, Antsiva is waiting for us ... it was not the junk of Ernest 10 years ago ... but a boat probably more adapted to the needs of 9 scientists aboard ... sockets to operate our computers, a total comfort, space (even for yoga!) ... and maybe especially the atmosphere on board, the captain and his team: Nicolas, his phlegm and his stories that made us dream, Lou and her cakes, Isabelle and her kitchen and Tombo imperturbable even under the scorching sun and the ambient air that vibrates to the sound of the compressor ...
Unforgettable mission ... "We could do like home on the boat", word of the captain ... And it was almost that, with in addition the coral reef below and the starry sky like roof ... Thank you for sharing your dream Nicolas ... I hope we will return to count the fish and stars on your boat ... before 10 years!
