Oman - On top of the world

Oman - On top of the world, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Well, not quite on top of the world, but pretty high up on the Hajjar mountains as we took the mountain rod from al-Hamra to al-Rustaq. It was very easy getting up there on a tarmac road and we had btime to pose for some pics and look out acorss the mountain scenery we had left behind, the northwards to where we were headed. Little did we know that the tarmac would finiosh about a kilometre further on and that we woyuld need all my driving skills, patience and the 4wd drive capability of our Toyota Land Cruiser Prado to get down the very steep and dusty descent into the sheer valley below. Well supported by Fred, I must say. We left it late so we had moonlight to help us on the last stretch.

Driving in Oman has been great fun, especially as we were upgraded to a 4WD. The roads are mostly empty and the landscapes ever changing witgh plenty of opportunities for off-road driving. The irony is that the fact that we do not have a car at home helps us pay for all our frequesnt trips abroad and when we do go abroad and hire a car, driving is such a better experience than it would be at home where there are constant traffic jams.

Fred had to go home today, catching his planned flight back. I was to leave for Saudi Arabia at the same time, but I did not manage to get a visa, so I am flying back in two nights time, using some of my KLM Flying Dutchman miles.
