Where I stayed
Maybe that is what always happens when prosperity and modernity hit a relatively undeveloped country. Apparently Oman had no paved roads until 1970, yet Muscat is now a large sprawling city of highways, massive buildings and ridiculously expensive hotels. I suppose I am fortunate that Ibis has not only opened a hotel in Amman this month, but also in Muscat.
So yes, here I am in a familiar chain hotel room again!
Expect to stay here until the 31st, and then hire a car to explore other, perhaps less modernised, parts of the country.
