... Bin Said since 1970 and has flourished under his rule. He has worked to increase tourism in Oman, as well as other businesses using the money that the petroleum industry has brought in. They know that the oil industry will not last forever, so have a goal to reduce their dependence on the oil industry, which is currently about 50% of their economy, to about 20 to 30% in the next several years.

... around but finished pretty quick and decided to wait (and catch up on the blog) in a Costa Coffee shop for Aziz to call me.

A little later he called and told me he was on the way and I should meet him in the car park at the lifts.

... to the canyon and along part of the canyon's balcony trail. Along the way, we encountered many shaggy goats, including a few daring (and persistent) ones that wanted to eat our lunch. Stupid goats. I'm glad Dennis decided we shouldn't buy one at the auction.

Dennis drove us back down the mountain without any problems. We stopped at Bahla Fort, a World Heritage Site, on our way back to Muscat. Bahla is the largest fort in Oman and was built in the 13th and ...
