“Jabal Himaar”?! Donkey Mountain?!

You can find these signs at many rest-areas on the LONG drive up Jabal Akhdar (Green Mountain).

One of the cute little villages on Green Mountain

Donkeys, donkeys, donkeys-everywhere donkeys! Before coming to Jabal Akhdar, I might have seen only 1 or 2 donkeys but there were too many to count on Oman’s 2nd largest mountain. (Not to confuse you-The mountain is called “Green Mountain“-I just think “Donkey Mountain” might be a more appropriate name…)
