OCT 18, 16 .. SAFELY INTO MY ROOM IN MUSCAT, OMAN

At some point in time, I will stop showing all of you, over-and-over, where The Sultanate of Oman is located. But what is the harm in showing its location in the world as often as I have been doing.

I myself had absolutely NO IDEA of where THE SULTANATE OF OMAN was before I knew last July that I was coming to Dubai.

To be honest I had no clear idea of where Dubai was nor where and what the United Arab Emirates were.

I am not 100% positive that I had even heard of or was even aware of Oman as a country let alone that it is The Sultanate of Oman.

How many of you knew that the capital city was a place named Muscat? How many of you knew that there was a Gulf of Oman?

Well sports fans, I still am not able to upload photos. So I am going to make this short and sweet.

I am safely into my room. My room is absolutely spartan, bare-bones, basic to the hilt. Motel 6 looks like a palace in comparison.

Oh YES I did indeed have a choice. The manger showed me several rooms and let me decide. So IT WAS I WHO choose to go bare bones. I could have had an extremely nice suite but chose to save some money. Like 50%.

It will be tomorrow until I find out how close I am to the Gulf of Oman and the beach that supposedly is located in this area of Muscat.

Keep scrolling down, this is my third Post dated OCT 18, 16.

      All things considered, it was a very smooth trip. I was out of my hotel room at 12:19PM (I had aimed to be out by 12-Noon so missed by only 19-minutes). The Hotel staff said a taxi would take 30-minutes. Ahad walked with me to the main street and VOILA there was a taxi. The Dubai Airport (DXB) was amazing. I ‘scanned’ my own passport and got my boarding pass presto quicko. Then I checked my one bag and took my one carry on bag through customs and immigration. Ended up at a totally empty Gate 9 well over 2-hours early.

      Emirates did not have early boarding BUT I was early anyway and you and I talked for 30-minutes with me sitting in my seat.

      That all being said, I was stressed out in the morning KNOWING that I was in super shape and had no worries about packing out. Go figure.

      Thank You for staying up all night to ‘fly with me’. Love, Cap
