We spent our weekend in the Mussandam which is the Northern enclave of the Sultanate of Oman tucked away at the tip of the United Arab Emirates and the Arabian Gulf. It also happens to be one of the best diving places in the world, also known for its majestic mountains.

People are genuinely friendly. The place is full of fishermen villages, some which can only be reached by boat and others without any electricity. Time actually stops.

We camped on one of the mountains under a full moon without a tent for a change.
We hired a fishing boat to visit the islands and to snorkel.

At one point, Michael found himself surrounded by a school of vicious barracudas of one meter long each! Fortunately for him, they were not interested in him. The ocean is full of fish and corals of all sizes and colours.
Unfortunately, we did not spot any dolphins, I guess it was not meant to be, at least not this time.
