In the ocean, we swam like dogs langoy-aso with the head sticking out from the water all the time and if you swim like this when you are in an Olympic-size pool with all the trained athletes or hotel guests who know the correct form looking, you just look like a damn fool.

There was no college or university in the island, so when I graduated from high school, my father told me to go to the university in a city located on top of a mountain.
As the city was on the mountaintop, the temperature was low and having a swimming pool for physical education class was just not appropriate.
