... omelette and an Omani dish Foul Madames, a savoury bean stew. Saw 2 camels walking past with Bedu man, obviously available for rides, but we are packed and ready to go, so it's off back across the desert to continue our journey. Once again we are impressed with vast new roads thru barren shingle countryside, some highways with tall street lighting. This is contrasted with Camels and goats freely grazing as we pass, some camels are hobbled apparently these are the females and the ...

Yesterday was awesome! We went into the mountains and got up to 2090 meters above sea level! It was so high, that Daisie's ears were so painful! Her ears wouldn't pop. The ice cream seemed to help a lot! We drove about an hour and a half out of Muscat to Jabel Shams. This area is known for the terrace gardens and old style villages. I loved the area because of the mountains! When we left home it was 29 degrees. We got to the mountain top and ...

You can't see what the women are wearing but when the women are by themselves at home or with other women ...

After I had made my way back down, I continued on my way to Muscat. The sidewalk was very well done, about 8 feet wide the entire way, with a nice wall that had granite plaques every 10-20 ...

Oman - A Middle Eastern "Escape"

... was bad, I was seriously mistaken. The guys here are the same (if not worse) than usual! They unabashedly gawk at you as you walk by, closing their mouths just before the drool starts to drip out. It does not matter if they are alone, with their friends (which makes it worse) or with their wife, kids, or extended family. Even our guide for the tours we took, Majid, turned out to be a creep and did little to hide the fact ...
