Oman for all seasons

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Where am I? I’m in Oman of course. Just arrived. Its dark and I’m not in a hotel but a company villa without an en suite bathroom. I am OUTRAGED. Its like India. Its like Bahrain. Its not like Dubai. Dubai was last weekend (or this weekend – its still Sunday) and Dubai was vast and commerical although we didn’t see much of the city as we journeyed to our hotel on the Palm. No, Dubai you can keep but Oman seems to have potential. There wear different hats here. It feels colonial. It feels like it has a soul. Lets see what it looks like in the day.
