I’m not sure if I did. I’m taking the bus from Dubai to Oman, because that way I get where I’m going slow enough to appreciate the desert and Oman’s incredible mountains:
Here’s Oman, if you forgot where it is:
Oman has been my major planned destination this entire semester. My top 3 reasons why I am so desperate to get to Oman:
- The government supports national crafts intensely and has some of the best in the region.
- They have have an archeologically documented, long, diverse history as farmers, merchants and rulers of most of the coast of East Africa.
- They have wild mountains.
Let’s see if Oman rocks as much as I think it will.
“A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?”–Kahlil Gibran
It sounds like a wonderful trip! I’m printing maps of the places you go – helps me visualize what you may see. Does Oman support the arts as well as the crafts? Send photos if you can!
