(not quite) Pic of the day from May and June…
Leah’s Muscat Singers Spring concert. Brought me back to the Keyano College Community Choir performances. There was an amazing brass band – gave me a new appreciation for the range of emotions brass can convey – and a full orchestra after.
A few of my co-workers having dinner on the beach. This is a typical way the Omani men get together – BBQ, tea and dates on the wadi mat.
One of the few evangelistic “bumper stickers” I’ve seen in Oman.
Stampede Organizing Committee Wrap Up party celebration. Celebrating another successful event.
Matty at the end of a long day of band camp on the weekend.
PDO day celebrations in the atrium of our building at work.
Shwarma at the beach!
just shake your head…
Face paint residue from Ethan’s final lesson of the Circus unit at school.
The amazing show James’ P7 class put on in May. Full of puns, singing, dancing and a great story too. James took a medium sized role, but later wished he had taken a larger part. Lesson learned?
Captain Swaggersword from the Pirates of the Curry Bean.
Doing actual technical work… Completing an RCA before going on leave.
In Oman during Ramadan we aren’t allowed to drink or eat at our desks and they convert one of the day shops to a Ramadan safe zone (RSZ – yes there is an acronym). Sometimes its just too far to walk for a quick drink of water.
Ramadan secret drinking spot number 1.
During Ramadan the Omanis park everywhere and the security team is a lot more lax about putting the “don’t park here” stickers on the cars… I guess parking directly in front of the office doesn’t get let go. The sticker says your car will be unlocked at 5:00pm, though it was gone already at 3:00.
Digging out the old lego ships and building our own designs… Me and Ethan built this one. The different building mentalities came out during this activity – Matty getting technical and adding as many cannons as he could find, James building great characters and Ethan a bit of mix.
Ramadan secret drinking spot #2.
Sara chilling on pizza night.
Lego train, retro Europe style.
PDO has embraced LEAN which means posters, posters, posters; kinda blocks the view so I drew Mina Al Fahal and the cliff. Nice view eh?
The last of the bacon that Mom and Dad brought December 2015. 21 pounds lasted 17 months.
Ramadan secret drinking spot #3 – if you wait long enough there is no one around.
Brunch at the American Club… an unofficial farewell gathering before everyone heads out for the summer.
