the good: long bottom times for Bunaken and Lembeh diving; many very good
walls at Bunaken; many good critters at Lembeh--not saw hairy, white frog
fish nor blue-ring octopus; but most entertaining  self-burial of snake eel
and mimic octopus at Lembeh; should have used the flash diffuser at Lembeh
due to high particle count; lots of int'l and amiable  divers--
German,Swiss, French, Dutch, Danish and British incl. British workers from
Jakarta; very knowledgeable divers and photographers during my stay there;
(on Singapore Airlines, very good-looking and very curvey stewardesses).

the bad: budget rooms too small and share bathrooms but ok due to low cost;
the longer you stay at ea. resort, the lower the daily cost; some beginner
divers but no problem; bring own dive computers and cameras; others had no
complaints on resort equipment; tanks not filled to 3000 psi, usually ~
2700 psi
