Gosh it's been a long time since I posted an update. There is a draft sitting around waiting for me to remember where I was going with it, but in the meantime this is what we did yesterday..........
Me and this bloke....
Drove into Wadi Mistal
With this bloke
|One old goat|
And this lovely lass
|An intrepid photographer|
|On Quad bikes|
|Smiley Omani goats|
We saw men removing wandering wadi from the road
|with palm fronds and shovels of course|
Some grand vistas. Some from high up.
|The ubiquitous felaj system, but this time with hanging vegetation|
Some were far away (Wadi Mistal is HUGE!!)
|with added ruin in the foreground|
|al Qurah Village where I spied a young girl curled up on her window sill reading.|
It was a lovely, lovely day and finished with wine and beer in Ali and Bob's garden along with multitudinous chirruping birdlife an Henrietta - the world's most spoilt chook.
Life is good.
