  • Day27

    Nach dem abenteuerlichen Ausflug in die Emirates wollten wir es etwas ruhiger angehen lassen und mit dem Auto nur nich zur nächsten Unterkunft fahren. Dreieinhalb Stunden laut Google Maps. Aber irgendwie haben wir über fünf Stunden gebraucht und sind in tiefster Dunkelheit die Off-road-Piste gefahren um zur Jebel Shams zu kommen.
    Wo wir die Zeit verloren haben wissen wir nicht. Vielleicht bei den Kamelen, die die Strasse überquerten? Oder bei Shoppen an der Tankstelle (es gab Holsten Bier alkoholfrei mit Granatapfel und natürlich Oreos)? Oder beim Essen unterwegs? Oder bei der Suche nach einem Cache?

    Auf jeden Fall sind wir gesund aber erledigt auf knapp 2000 Höhenmeter angekommen.

    Finished the day after a steep climb up to near the highest point in Oman, Jebel Shams.

    Nice views on the way up, also gave some old local man a lift, he didn't speak any English. Watched the sunset had some food and then stayed out to watch the sky, it was so clear and could see the milky way. Tried to take a picture.

  • Day110

    Woke up early and headed to do the 'balcony walk' in what is known as the Omani Grand Canyon.

    It isn't as impessive or big as the real Grand Canyon, but it was impressive, and the balcony walk along the inside of the canyon was awesome. Although it was very hot which explains why nobody else was doing it. Meant I had the abandoned village at the end of the walk to myself (why they put a village there anyway I don't know).

    It was so hot, as soon as I arrived goats started approaching the car, I thought they were friendly. Turns out they just wanted the shade that had just arrived.
