after moving apartment, carrying heavy boxes, getting sending away the last letters, F and I finally started our Round the World trip!
First stop - Oman. Muscat.
A wonderful slow capital with friendly people, bargaining, Souks (bazaars), beach and quite tasty food (how do you like a boiled baby shark dish?! ).
It is hard to get around without taxi, but if you know how to bargain (come on, we are on the Middle East here!!) you get a good deal!!
No shopping - but instead visiting the Grand Mosque, Sultans palace, a fish market (is a must!!) and drinking plenty of fresh juices (pomegranate...yum!!).
in a couple of hours boarding to Colombo (Sri Lanka)
