Eid in September

The Eid holiday fell over September 23 and 24 this year so we decided to go on an overnight road trip with some friends and do some exploring of Oman. 


First Trip to the Desert

I am sure this will become routine and old hat but I was a little excited for my first trip into the interior where the oil field and processing plant that I support is located.


As-Salaam alaykum

Peace be with you.  And then your response would be Wa alaykum as-Salaam, and with you peace.  That is the traditional greeting among Omanis, one that we have picked up as well.  A few phrases and manners goes along way.
