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 :)

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