Salalah & The Full Moon

I love Salalah when it's the full moon. Everyone disappears. Literally, everyone disappears to Mirbat or Taqa (nearby towns) for all-nighter picnics under the stars. Barbecues, fires, gossip, and tales of Jinn.
I spent the late afternoon/evening walking down the Haffa beach with a friend. It was unusually quiet at the beach. A few groups of females huddled in group talking, some children playing, definitely NO males over the age of 12 within a 2 mile radius. They were all watching the Dhofar -Muscat soccer match. Wonder who won ....
I've attached a picture of the Haffa Corniche on a busy afternoon. Typical Salalah. (April 9, 2009)
