Salalah--Monsoon






Took a two day trip by bus to Salalah at the end of Ramadan. From June to September everything in Salalah is intensely green, and the weather resembles Seattle Washington, Cape Town, South Africa in winter, or Arusha, Tanzania. Misty cool wet weather with DENSE fog cupping the mountains around the town. The Omanis love it; they come here in droves every khareef season to soak in this uncommon (for Oman) weather. You'll find them camped on the side of the road or rowing boats in the wadis. But since it was Ramadan, there were far fewer tourists of any kind, and so I mostly had the wadis to myself.
