... neighborhood in Muscat. We bypass the Qurm nature reserve in the center of the city housing an animal park and children's amusement park- it is hours of entertainment for the family! We wind further into the rocky mountains, the roads flanked by white washed mosques and traditional Islamic looking buildings. Never a boring roundabout, with pots,boats and a variety of other visually stimulating center pieces. We pass through the old city gates, that were still closed every night until the ...

... side roads and would see guys at sewing machines making hats and clothes, I really felt I’d walked into the middle eastern culture I expected it to be – sure there was a tourist feel to the place but you could see the culture of the town overshadowing it, the giveaway being when you see the locals shopping in the same souks as we were.

Sunrise at 06:42. Warm and sunny at 27C.

Arrived at our berth in Muscat, Oman at 07:30. This is the first time that the QM2 has visited Muscat. We could see people photographing the ship as we arrived.

Muscat is the capital and largest city of the Sultanate of Oman. It was formerly an important trading port between the west and the east. Not surprisingly, 80% of Oman's economy now comes from oil and gas. Petrol here is 20 cents (USD) a litre. ...

... great experience. Then on the east bank of the Dubai creek there were many, many of these Dhows that were loading and unloading their cargo. There were no cranes in sight but they guys had hundreds of fridges and washing machines on board. they must have carried them on one by one. Quite shocking for me to see people doing this kind of work where at the same time you don't need to leave an air-conditioned area in order to get from the train to the mall, ...
