Today I had a chance to check out some other parts of the UAE. I also had the opportunity to visit the Sultanate of Oman. My passport visa for the UAE has nearly expired so I made a trip to Oman to get another 30 renewal. Hard to believe it has been 30 days already. The process of going from Dubai to Oman is not a big deal, it is just knowing the right steps and checking into the right places.
The drive thru the desert was very interesting. Large sand dunes with scruffy plants and when you get close to Oman, the countryside turns into very rocky, craggy hills, some that were pretty high up.
One attraction that I was able to get a picture of was a camel standing beside the road. A number of them were just walking where ever they wanted, so that is why the “Camel Crossing” signs are necessary.
