Omani dates are the best in the world, we thought. We were sitting on the floor of the majlis of an Omani house in old Nizwa. In front of us, on a cloth covering the carpet, fresh fruits, dates, tahini and tea.
Finally, we were on the other side of the Arabian sea! After taking an unexpected mean of transport: a cruise ship! And when we put our first foot in Oman, we really didn’t know what to expect from this country and from Middle East.
