Tucked away under the shade of my breakfast source, Lulu in Darsait, I saw this well travelled car. Well travelled not just from Salalah, where I photoed it last week, to Muscat – but after 6 years on the road it has the most kilometres of any non production car.
Do you live in Oman? Would you like a great price on the book ‘Walking through History’? Its all about Oman’s 4 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Bat, Al Ayn and Al Kutm; Bahla; 5 Aflaj Systems and the Land of Frankincense.

I found the beach, in an amphitheatre of mountains cascading into the sea, and from it I have swum since then.
