... Hotel, which later turned out to be probably one of the cheapest in Oman. I still wanted to meet up with Aziz but time was a bit short. We agreed to meet at another (the third) Costa along the Street of the 18th of November (sorry I didn't research the significance of this date in Oman history).

... the bride. He also has to throw 2-3 parties for his family, her family and the wedding. Our guide today said it cost him $70,000 to get married! 800 people attended their wedding/parties. Although Omani men can have more than one wife, he also said one wife is enough!
