The Beach in Muscat

This entry comes to you from Boulogne Sur Gesse in Southern France. It has been a whirlwind of a week with many new impressions. A week ago we were walking along the Corniche in Muscat and exploring the Souq.

After two nights in Muscat we drove back to Al Ain in the UAE and Monday we were off to the airport in Dubai. We decided to spend a couple of days in Prague en route to Southern France where we will spend time with a family for a cultural exchange. 

I have a couple of posts from Oman to wrap up our time with Andrew in the Middle East and will start out with one from the beach in Muscat.

We arrived just before sunset and the beach was busy with about a dozen or so beach soccer games in progress. Families were gathering and some were swimming. We decided against a swim and merely took in the atmosphere. After the beach we had dinner at Trader Vic's at the Intercontinental Hotel. We saw an Indian wedding celebration in progress with a guest list of 700. Quite a sight with live band, caterers, videographers, lighting show and everything imaginable.
