Today was a national holiday in Oman--Renaissance Day, which also meant no school for us! At 5pm we met our language partners for a picnic Iftar. We drove to the Tanuf Dam, though unfortunately, there was no water. We walked atop a closed Falej and it was nice to just be in the silence of the canyon. Then when it was time to break fast, we has dates and juice to start off, followed by a meal of samosas, pizza, grapes, and dates. After dinner, we went to the souq and walked around in the smaller shops. I also found Of Mice and Men in Arabic so of course I had to get it! In addition I bought children's stories in Arabic so that I can continue by reading skills when I'm back in the US.
