A two hour road trip to Oman was just what I needed to remind me that I am a world away from home. We crossed the border to Oman and found ourselves haggling for antiques in stores with no air conditioning, drinking cokes out of bottles that cost about 30 cents from the local coffee shop, and eating hummus and cherries for lunch on the top of the only mountain in the entire country.

Barb and Hassan haggle with the local shopkeeper. Thank goodness for Hassan, he was such a nice guy and a great help.

This is apparently the face I make when I get a good deal. And who bought that hat? Sheesh.

This is where we had lunch. Apparently this mountain is known for the Mini Cooper ad that came out a few years ago...I never saw that ad but here's the mountain.
