Rain in Salalah

on Friday

Rain is welcome in Salalah Oman , it keeps the mountains green and these are a great source of pride to the local population; and helps all the fruit farmers in the town with better water supply.

But even better than rain – is rain on a Friday. So as today is Friday, and it rained, we took to the mountains – and got wet with everyone else enjoying the rain; though these camels and their young were taken to shelter.
