Thursday, March 14:  This morning I took a couple of my friends to Muscat to visit Mutrah Souq and then to have lunch at the Blue Marlin Restaurant at Marina Bandar al Rowdha.  Mona Lisa had never been to Mutrah Souq before; Char had been before, but only once.  Though I have sworn off spending money during my remaining months in Oman, I did break down and buy a couple of necklaces and a black Indian tunic.  Here are a couple of pictures from our day.

It wasn’t too hot to sit outside for lunch at the Blue Marlin Restaurant, so we did just that, overlooking the beautiful Marina Bandar al Rowdha.
