13 April 2014 (GTMO Day 2 + Selected Pics)

I know it is going to sound crazy, but I went boating and snorkeling today in Guantanamo Bay! What an amazing experience. The water was so warm and it is gorgeous. Definitely a change of pace from Chicago weather. We also got to see the Cuba-USA maritime border line from the boat, which was very cool to experience.

We were out in the sun for about 5 hours, so must of us relaxed for about an hour once we got back to Camp Justice. We did another run to the NEX, to get any supplies people forgot yesterday. Afterwards, we went to dinner at the Pub, which for future IU Affiliates, it does have a good burger.

When I got back from the dinner, I went to the NGO Lounge and worked on Blog material and read over Chief Prosecutor Mark Martins Remarks at Guantanamo Bay today (13 April 2014). Also, I re-read the Competency Motions because after talking with the Defense Team yesterday, this issue is probably going to take up most of the week.

Please see below selected photos from Day 2. The internet is only dial-up speed, so it takes FOREVER to upload photos. Once I am back in the US, I will post the rest of the photos from each day.

On the boat trip, we could see Cuba. Apparently, it is the mountains in the background.
