A Travellerspoint blog

Back in Muscat

sunny 40 °C

Sorry about the delays in posting, the traveling eventually caught up with me. Abu Dhabi was interesting, but pretty tame after being in Dubai. We visited a girls university, interestingly enough. The director is an American from Utah, and we had a pretty interesting Q&A with some of the girls there. Once again, doing our part to convince people over here that no, in fact, Americans do not all live like what you see on TV, and no, not everyone thinks all Muslims are terrorists. But, by far, the best part of the visit was the fact that the university food court had a Burger King in it. It tasted like freedom... and grease, which apparently go hand in hand. Anyways, now we're back in Muscat. We're done with the formal part of studies, which means we aren't going to class on a daily basis anymore. Of course, now I suddenly realize that I've decided to do an independent research project where I'm going to need to be interviewing the heads of large companies and directors of government bureaus. In other news, I expect to hear back about a program I applied to in Yemen for the summer sometime this week. So, with any luck (insha'allah), the 'and beyond' part of the title of this blog will include Yemen. I'll update when I know anything. Just about one month left to go...
