Axe Murderer Tours in Stars & Stripes!!!!!

I got an e-mail from my friend who I took diving a couple weeks ago. You'll remember he's the one who lives in Japan and works for Stars and Stripes - the military newspaper. He saw my blog and wrote me to ask who he could go diving with when he came to Saipan in a few weeks. We had a couple great Grotto dives together, and thoroughly enjoyed our time. I didn't realize he had taken a few pictures of me while we were diving. So in his e-mail he asked if he could use the pictures of me for something he's putting in Stars and Stripes for the Augst 12th edition. So Saipan and the Grotto will be getting some international exposure to military personnnel from his story and pictures. Things like this are worth their weight in gold promotionally for Saipan. I'm beginning to think the government should just hire me to replace Marianas Visitors Authority. I'm a heck of a lot cheaper and will probably get just as much publicity for the islands. In the picture above, I was busy doing what I'm almost always doing down there these days, taking pictures of nudibranchs. And speaking of nudibranchs, Saipan has been getting a lot of interest on the internet as a result of the nudibranch pictures I've been posting to different sites lately. The picture above is when I was taking Doug outside the Grotto for a look around. Needless to say I'm quite excited about the pictures and story being in Stars and Stripes, and Axe Murderer Tours may soon have more business than I know what to do with. Too bad I don't charge anything for my dive services, I might be able to buy myself lunch one of these days if I did. So on August 12th, you can go to the online version of Stars & Stripes to see the pictures and the story. Many thanks to Doug Johnson for taking the pictures in the blog entry for today and then agreeing to let me use them.

Seriously CNMI government, if you really want to save some money, you could hire me to keep promoting Saipan through my blog instead of all that money you spend on MVA. You can just pretend that I wouldn't keep doing it for free anyway. I'm telling you though, I think you'd get much better bang for your buck! And Angelo can't understand why this seems to be the favorite Saipan blog. Sorry pal, you kill innocent grass and scare trees to death, I play free tour guide and bring Saipan lots of great exposure. Promote Saipan - vote Harry's World!
