Today, I viewed scenery I'd never experienced before.
I sat on the deck of a dhow, listened to classical music on my ipod, relished the sun and took in spectacular scenery for 10 hours…!!! i will add a slide show tomorrow.
The Musandam Peninsula is the northernmost part of Oman jutting out into the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf. The province, or governorate of Musandam as it is officially known, is separated from the rest of Oman by various of the United Arab Emirates – Ras al Khaimah and Fujairah. Musandam more or less begins where the mountains rise from the plains of Ras al Khaimah. The mountains have isolated communities for centuries. Coastal villages can be reached only by boat rather than by road. Pockets of flat land support meagre agriculture.
