Omani Hospitality

As we were looking for lunch we met Izmael who invited us to stay at his house and meet his family and friends. We felt very priviledged  indeed to have had an insight into their lifestyle and traditions and enjoyed learning about their cultural beliefs and family life in an Arabian Islamic country.

The Morning After!

No alcohol involved but a very very stormy night – one broken guy rope and Martin hauling more rocks to secure the tent in the middle of the night. Can you believe that it was still blowing next morning!?


Like the village children these donkeys just appeared en route “out of the blue”.


These curious village children were all siblings or cousins and appeared from above after some of their neighbors had brought warm food for us.
