          Today started off hot! So hot it was unbelievable. The heat took my breath away. We woke up late and headed for breakfast at cafe@270. Breakfast was Seattles best coffee (not great) with raisin bran and melon fingers followed by a cinnamon and raisin bagel with lashings of butter. Food was nice but the service was a lot to be desired. Seemed that …

          ... I have been warned by Matteo and Darach, my
          other nephew here. I head along the coast through small villages,
          fishing boats moored on the beaches and apart from one or two
          vacation complexes, undeveloped.

          I get to Sohar mid
          afternoon and drive around hoping to find the hotel without any great

          ... time it has grown and all the alleyways and houses around the original market have been incorporated into a labyrinth of shops and alleys busy with people buying, selling, and that most important of conversations in this part of the world, haggling. We are right in the heart of the Frankincense trail here and everywhere in the souk stall holders were selling and burning this precious resin. It is claimed to have antibacterial properties, keep Mosquitos away and smell ...

At one point we thought he was going forward to reverse back in, was he hell he had missed it again. We checked in and headed for something to eat at our local little restaurant then came back to start the packing the process. It was a never ending task and at 9.30pm we gave in to the hunger pangs and went ...

          There were about 10 of these Arabic tents with pillows on the ground and these beautiful Arabic men serving us.

          I'll end this post with a mention of this morning's breakfast here at the hotel. I overslept yesterday and missed breakfast, but OMG, the word "buffet" is an insult. They had stations for everything - your basic eggs, omlettes, ...
