so la shukran - no thank you

Naam - yes

Had to do a visa run to Hatta last Monday. Going through the checkpoints at the Omani border checkpoint before Hatta (manned by UAE army guys) couldn't believe how much they appreciated my very basic Arabic. Same applied on the Omani side. Lots of smiles and thank you's for making the effort!!!!
