Shark in Sipadan.

Sipadan flashback

In July, during my stay in Sipadan (Borneo, Malaysia), I had prepared two short underwater videos, thinking to post them in stride. But the wifi from the resort where I was connecting broke down, and the videos stayed on Vimeo. So I forgot about them! Here they are.

These are two short "raw" sequences. I give them to you below, just to be patient, while waiting for the small underwater montages I'm preparing for future posts...

1) Shark Prayer

The first shows my buddy Linda, hands clasped over a shark. It was his way of swimming. Always very calm, as in prayer, with his palms against each other.

2) Express tortoise

In the second one, I film a turtle, not at all shy, swimming straight on me and almost jostling me to go on its way! In Sipadan, turtles are everywhere.

A puff of nostalgia invades me by seeing these images.

I diveed there a whole week, staying on the neighboring island of Mabul. I would have stayed there a week more. Sipadan is, by far, the most amazing diving spot I have ever seen in any of the sites where I dive in Asia.
