The rain had stopped during the night and it was a beautiful day in the morning again. My trip took me back along the road and I tried to stop off at some prehistoric tombs that have been there for 5000 years (3000 bc). It wasn't that easy to find the way to get close to these tombs. I had to cross another wadi and drive along one. It was all explained in the Book and I did finally get there walked up to the beehive tombs maybe 200 m, saw a little snake ...

But today we are on a smelly mission Muscat has always had a strategic position on the spice trail, and one of the most valuable commodities traded in this area was frankincense.

It is easy to conform to the country's conservative dress standards right now; August would be another matter entirely, though. (My other three visits to the Middle East/North Africa have occurred in August, so I am well acquainted with that heat.)

... coffee with cardimin Yum! We ventured around the Souq, tried not to buy anything, but came out with the obligatory shirt, Omani hat for Louis and a pashmina for me. We also bought loads of tasty snacks, dates etc. all very sweet and yummy. Spent a while in the pool, gym and sauna . Had a day of rest on Friday, repacked cases. We really wanted to go out to a wadhi, but they are all full day tours and we didn't want a big day out. We will come back to oman, and maybe see other ...
