Muscat during Ramadan
Taking an early morning stroll on the beachfront of
Al Azaiba, Muscat was peaceful, serene and inspiring.
I especially liked hearing the fishermen starting
their boat engines as they prepare for the early morning
‘catch of the day’ and it reminded me of
two lovely books that I read many
years ago which left an impact on me.
The first was John Steinbeck’s ‘The Pearl‘,
a thought-provoking story and the
second Ernest Hemingway’s
‘An Old Man and the Sea’ of an old
seasoned fisherman struggling against
defeat and the greatest catch of his life.
Both I highly recommend.
