Been browsing the Sandpit and very surprised how few posts from Oman.
I spent many years there, and for me was one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Have things changed? No Brits?
Regards.

I also spent a few very enjoyable years in Oman in the mid 90's. The following blog gives an interesting view of the current goings on if you are familiar with the place.

Dubaidog,
Thanks for the info, very interestig, but it didn,t read like the Oman I knew. Obviously time changes everything(that,s a song innit) I spent 17 years there, and I rank them as being amongst my best years.What did you do there and where?
Regards.
