Whenever I go to Oman, I notice stuff, some of which are old and some new. I just thought I would put them down, let me know f you have anything to add:
~ With City Center Mall under expansion, the management has provided golf carts to shuttle customers back and forth from the parking lot.
~ Durng summer it gets to a scorching heat of 40+ with strong sun rays beaming down, nobody wears sunglasses.
~ You get cold water from hot water tap in summer time, and hot water from cold water tap. In winter its vice versa.
~ People drink tea or coffee in the midday summer heat.
~ A country which mports 80% of its fruits and vegetables, you can buy freshly squeezed fruit juce at any corner shop. (Ever had avocado juce?)
~ There are no price tags in most mid size supermarkets with over 200 varietes, shopkeepers have memorized the exact price and quantity aof each item!
~ In some parts of the country, especially interior, shopkeepers leave their shops unlocked while going to mosque during prayer times!
