My impression of Oman so far? Very expensive.
I may be speaking too soon though. We just ordered a breakfast at similar to US fast food prices, so perhaps I shouldn’t complain just yet.
Last night we arrived super late and did an overnight at a hotel in Quram Beach. The plan was to hire a driver today to take us up into the mountains. Right, if we were rich. It turns out that we are not in India anymore.
Our latest game plan it to track down a rental car and attempt a self-drive. This is easier said than done because many of the car rental companies seem to be sold out today and, to compound that problem, we are told that we will need four wheel drive to make it to Jebel Shams: Oman’s Grand Canyon, our mountain destination.
Chris is on the case while I make sure that our breakfast arrives to our table as ordered!
The adventure never ends…
As a side note, I can’t imagine trying to do this pre-iPhone. It would have taken ten times as long and it would have been an infinitely bigger struggle.
