I just crossed my six year anniversary living in Oman, and I continually waffle back and forth if it’s time to move on to something new or not. So, I created a list to help anyone to decide if it has been too long in Oman.
After five years living and working in the Sultanate, there is one thing that still catches me out: Omani business hours. Just the other day I set out to purchase one liter of spare oil for my magic carpeted ride. Sounds simple, right? Not so, because this American forgot that 2pm is sleepy time in Muscat. When will I learn?
What to wear as a visitor to Oman?
This is probably the number one question I am asked about Oman. Well actually, the question is probably more like, “are women all fully covered in Oman?” I love this question because it lets me speak about the great things that go on here, and how Oman doesn’t fit the western stereotype of the Middle East. It also opens door for me to relate Oman back to the curious traveler who asked the question with advice on what to wear as a visitor to Oman.
