I decided to take advantage of the generous Eid vacation and promptly buggered off for a couple of weeks. I'm back now, and will get back to posting local news as it comes my way.
Here's a few snaps of where I've been...
It was nice. I am often torn between living the life we live here, and returning to this place, but here I am again, back in sunny Oman :)
So, what's been going on here in the last 2 weeks then?
Local bloggers, Undercover Dragon, and more recently, Muscat Jet Driver, have announced that they have left Oman.

I really did enjoy reading about the exploits of Nasser Bin Tumoon.
Hi FM have launched their 80's night, which by now everyone should know about. I'm looking forward to it, I even bought some awesomely tacky aviator glasses when on leave.

Traffic seems to have gotten absolutely insane again, I guess all the schools are back on then. I hope the Expressway is opened soon!
