Lost in the desert in Oman

We went glamping in the desert in Oman for a night. The next morning, Carmel pointed us to our next destination.

Using better tools than the sense of direction of a toddler, we put our trust in Waze. As we followed a school bus up a dirt road following the edge of a cliff road, we thought that maybe we were being led astray, but wanted to see where it would lead us. As you can see in this panorama, the answer is nowhere, except a stunning view.

Eventually we turned around and found a main road.

Ordering a double double in Oman

In the realm of completely unexpected, I had no idea that Tim Hortons was anywhere else, let alone Oman. At first I was skeptical that this was the real deal. When I turned the corner and saw the sign, I gave it a double-check to make sure I wasn’t walking into Tom Hartons or some absurd imitation. The only way to know for sure was to order a double-double and see what would happen. Turns out, it was the real deal.
