The Omani camel. This is definitely the preferred way to travel. Don't you just love their little "teddy bear style" ears and curly coats? Giant 4x4 cars might get agressive with a Nissan Sunny from Thrifty rentals, but they won't mess with a camel.
It's now noon and hot, so having been out since 08.30 I'm back indoors and going to sleep till 15.30. The Indian workmen laying paving stones and building things will toil on regardless.
