Education in Australia – not just for Aboriginal people (part 2)

Enrolling in Australian private schools is easy – just have money, know English and get an interview.

However, diving in Egypt is not always safe: instructors are careless, equipment is often faulty, and therefore, if you do not understand the matter at all, it is better to just dive with a mask.
