Travelogue (Oman and UAE)

Salaam aleykum, Oman!
Camels everywhere instead of flock of sheep
The road is drastically zig-zagging up and down
...we feel tiny here!
On the way to our night camp on the high plateau

Downhil to the coast
Our little "villa" with seaview
Camping in the abandoned beach bungalow
Can it get any better?

1'000km through the desert
This aggressive intruder has been found in Patrizia's biking shorts one morning!
Frankinsence bushes
Adnan and Ali
Plain nothing
Oman is an organised tidy country
Watch out, sand dune from the left!
Dancing Queen...
Desert nights under the amazing firmament
Road to nowhere
A lonely pole  is the only support to create  a little shade for the siesta
I need a break!

Dried fish on sale - guarded with a rifle
Camels are stubborn creatures
... especially when they have to be loaded on a transporter
Don't you like it?
Quite progressive...
Back to civilisation
Another usage for satellite dishes
Wow, wifi internet and big coffees
Real Turkish Iskender Kebab - yummy!
... and real Tiger beer from Singapore
Allah's ban of alcohol is not taken very seriously in private clubs
Brö is making friends with the two police officers, better be on the safe side
