I must say: you’ve definitely helped to put Oman on my radar. Anthony Bourdain helped too, with his excellent Parts Unknown episode which painted Oman in a very positive light. And then there’s the fact that it’s one of the few countries that still boasts a population of Arabian leopards; threatened though they are.
It’s a place that has a great history, very conservative in some ways, but since the 1970’s has shown a peaceful & moderating influence in dealings with other countries.
