Coconuts from Arabia

after a nice Horse Ride under the Coconut Palms of Salalah

Underneath the coconut trees of Salalah with parakeets squawking overhead ,  it hardly seems like Arabia – but thats what I got during a break in Oman. The cool weather of summer in Salalah is so un-Arabian that taking an Arab Horse ride gives an authentic part of Arabia and is a great opportunity to take some leisurely exercise.

Afterwards the drink of choice has to be Coconut; we wanted some the ‘Sri-Lankan’ variety which is even sweeter than normal , however these were a wonderful end to a nice day.
