Whilst filling up with petrol, some random Omani guy clambered on board and he and the driver spoke loudly in Arabic. Almost drowning out the English audio. Turns out he's a tourguide in training. We should have been told.
Good infrastructure in Oman. Dual carriageway through the mountains.
First stop, walked up an incline to view a palm tree grove and abandoned 500yo village. Present day village name translates to "The Cool of the Bananas". Some Zanzibar architectural influences.
One hour in Nizwa. "No time to see the Fort (5 rials), yet there is always too much time for coffee, food-tasting and the set lunch !
Lunch was far too much food, which we wasted.
I realise that the two drivers needed a break
Bahla was home to the "Djinns" (Genies).
A beautiful day ended in a rainy drive back to Muscat.
