so well, Dubai was impressive, but it was not “the” orient…
“the” orient can be found in Mascat, Oman. There you will find a nice Souk, little alleys and very friendly people, surrounded by a landscape that looks like the mars. or something like that. If you are interested in geology, Oman is the place to be. But just look at the pictures 🙂
And the water… Our stay on the beach of the Oman Dive Center ended with a short moment of panic, because the one and only road leading to the beach was closed due to a bike-tour. this was not so nice, because we had to go back on the ship in time and we had no time left… this was the moment of light panic, but than we had the idea to rent one of the boats they use for the diving tours. Luckily, the women in charge was speaking Italian and one of our italien dancer was a diver too, so they had a quick conversation together with the owner of the boat and off we went. to the pier. and not further. because, the tide was low and the boat was on sand. yeeha.
But we tried our best and with a lot of screaming and pulling we got the boat loose and we had a high speed trip back to the ship. Adventure adventure!
