The class held until 6 o’clcok pm in the evening. Nobody interested pause, then heading the Manta diving center start the practice. Gallup examined all the students equipment with patience, give the students an individual pertinence suggestions, so that everyone can establish the neutral buoyancy better into the water after.
All have dinner during the intense training break in the canteen. When training ended, it is already 10 pm. Although the venue closed, but Gallup still made a summary of the day to point out the problems and improving method for everyone.
Although the plan is very full, but Gallup & Becca didn’t miss out the opportunity to taste delicious Wuhan hot dry noodles

在紧张训练中大家在奥体食堂共 进晚餐，训练结束后已经是十 点，Gallup 还和学员在深夜的场 馆外和大家做一天的总结，依依 指出各人存在的问题和改进方法
尽管计划非常满，但Gallup 和蚊子，并没有忘记在 紧张之余，偷尝武汉的名小吃热干面
