In the afternoon of February 19, we will do a sightseeing trip to the Souq of Muscat followed by the conference banquet.
Participants who would like to stay longer after the workshop are invited to participate in a three-day camping trip to the Al Hajar Mountains west of Muscat. We will drive there directly from Wahiba Sands. On this trip we will drive our own (rented) 4W drive cars, and participants must bring basic camping gear (sleeping bag, iso mat, tent or folding bed, etc.) and warm clothes. Camping gear can also be bought cheaply in Muscat (30-40 OMR total for tent, iso mat and sleeping bag).
