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.

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 :)
