    Sardines Sardines Sardines

    November 2, 2017 in Oman

    I like sardines, so when we got the opportunity to see them being harvested I was pumped. We met our guide Mohammed a little after 9. It is a half day tour of the area around Salalah Oman. We are driving east, up the coast in a Toyota Land Cruiser to Mirbat when we come upon a seagull convention on the beach beside us. All of us get out to see. Men are bringing in nets full of Sardines, transferring them to huge bags, and staggering with the heavy bags to the back of a truck where they are dumped. The truck teems with jumping fish, some of who escape, only to be snatched up by the sea gulls.

    Mirbat is an old trading post on the spice route from India, and we get some photos there. On the way back we stop at a Souk that specializes in local incenses and perfumes. Frankincense is the local specialty. Of course we buy something. I don't even know what it is, but it smells good. We all get back to the ship in time for lunch, spend the afternoon reading and later played shuffle board. Ya Shuffle board, what does that say? I don't know, but I had a good time. Cripes what does that say?

    10.4. Strandleben in salalah

    April 10, 2017 in Oman

    ruhige nachtfahrt ohne piratenüberfall in den grossen naturhafen der hauptstadt der weihrauchprovinz dhohar.
    die geplante stadtbesichtigung mit Moscheen, sultanpalästen , shouks etc. scheiterte bei vielen und auch uns
    an den geforderten preisen der taxen. 50 € je strecke und wagen für die 25 km zur innenstadt war uns einfach zuviel
    (am Ende einer Reise wird halt das Budget knapper). als alternative sind wird zu einem strandresort gefahren und
    haben dort den heissen tag an den Pools bzw. am menschenleeren breiten Sandstrand mit allen hotel-
    Annehmlichkeiten verbracht (s. fotos).
    kurz vor Mitternacht dann weiter der jemenitischen Küste entlang, um dann das rote Meer ganz bis ins jord.
    aqabar zu durchqueren, wo wir in 3 tagen einlaufen sollen.
    nach dem restprogramm war dies heute bereits die letzte strandepisode.
