Salalah-LA!LA!LA!, Here we come!

These are scenes from our long ride (over 1000 kms!) from Ibri to Salalah. Marios, Patty, Jonathan and I rented a car for our 6-day adventure down south and Marios did all the driving as he was the only one with a license. (Hopefully mine will be sent soon from Canada…) Some say it is a boring ride but I couldn’t disagree more. There is a real beauty to the whole desert drive and although many co-workers say it’s a kind of trip you would only want to take once in your lifetime, I hope to drive back down again in the future.

Oh, MAN! Where in the world is OMAN?!

Oman really sounded like the middle of nowhere when I first heard about the country and thought of teaching here.

A closer look at Oman. If you look closely, you’ll see “my” town of Ibri in the north and the town of Salalah where a few of us vacationed in the far south of the country.
