More Salalah II
View out my apartment window on a rainy day.
Flooding outside Salalah. See the guys securing the telephone poles? A few were already gone.
Another view of the flood.
At the fish market. Role up your pants if you don't want blood on them.
Catch of the day.
A butcher cuts meat amazingly fast with his toes.
Cows' heads casually laying on the ground.
A group of extremely friendly old men sit outside the fish market armed to the teeth for no reason. The culture here is very tribal and "manly", but a WWII-era rifle is basically a fashion statement.
Boogie-boarding in the Indian Ocean. Easily the biggest waves I've swam in - some were probably 10 feet high. (I'm riding the wave on the far right.)
I successfully ride a wave in to shore.
Getting our butts kicked by the surf. We felt like margaritas, we were so salty.
Dusk on the beach.
