You don't get much cuter than this..

Ok, so I like cows. You got a problem with that? I think they are cute creatures; and furthermore, they give us milk, cheese, yoghurt, ice cream, butter, brie (!), cream, etc. I don't really like beef, so I'm not going to praise them for giving up their lives for our appetites.
I hope you guys are having a great day. Went for a drive up to Iteen yesterday (that's right under the mountains) and was pleased to see that everything really did turn green finally.

I heard rumors that they cancelled Women's Day at the festival forever! Is it true? For years and years, Sunday was female day at the monsoon festival. It was the 'safe' day when families would dump their girls at the festival for several hours to play on the rides, chill out in the restaurants, and do their shopping. It was the highlight of the summer for many girls. I never went on Sunday because it was too crowded (i.e too many women pushing and shoving), but it's kind of shocking to hear it was cancelled altogether. Here's a photo of the festival on women's day, all abayas and not a dishdasha in sight!


  1. Lol at the cows! I once went camping near to a field of cows and felt very intimated by them: they're so BIG! ;0)
    Why did they cancel it I wonder? If it was popular that doesn't make any sense....please let us know when you find out inshaAllah, Peace and blessings always, Jasmine ;0) xx

  2. Hi, I'm a European expat currently living in Muscat and came across your blog by coincidence earlier today. Read the whole thing and love it, well done! Have to visit Salalah soon :-)


  3. Haha, love cows as much as you won't, just don't get too extreme on us and start protecting them. We need our steaks you see! ;)

  4. Hi i am in Indian Working for in muscat ( for a prominent family in salalah). My parents live in salalah ( Auqad R/abt). I have been to salalah twice, love it there and i think you are the only person who have managed to bring out its charm and uniqueness better than any travelguides and websites .

  6. Cancelling woman's day doesn't make sense to me whatsoever.
