    It’s always great to hear from you. About the camera-yes, it’s a new camera. (12.1 megapixels!)

    • Hi, Sana! Welcome to the Sultanate! Great question about the kids. I wondered the same thing as I have a 2 and a half year old son and 5 and a half year old daughter. I asked one of the Red Bull organizers and she didn’t think it’d be a good idea to bring wee little ones in such a hot, rugged place for hours on end. It has the potential to get up to 45 degrees celsius tomorrow. If it’s possible, maybe you could have someone babysit and head down for a few hours. The best situation is to have a spouse (or family member/friend/babysitter) who doesn’t mind watching the kids for a few hours while you head down to Wadi Shab! ;-)
