For those of you curious enough to know…
I am an expat married to an Omani, who has been living in Salalah long enough to appreciate and admire the culture but not long enough to willingly eat camel or wear a pom pom.
Our decision to leave the luxuries of ‘home’ was made in hopes of finding contentment in the simple things in life.
I have grown to truly love and respect the people here, their traditional values and conservative lifestyle. At times though, I am a fish out of water.
The intention to write was inspired in part by a friend, along with my need to release through words. My journey to and in Salalah has been one full of excitement, strange encounters and a strengthening of faith.
