One of the great things about living in Al Ain is that it's pretty close to everything. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are only about an hour away, the empty quarter is just south, and the Oman border is only minutes away. Amy and I decided to start out March by hopping the border and heading into Oman with a local group called the Al Ain Weekenders. We didn't know what to expect, but we were happily surprised. 

The geography in Oman is drastically different than the U.A.E. Instead of an ocean of sand dunes and sky, Oman is filled with enormous mountains and rugged terrain.

The Grand Mosque

In spite of a heavy work load, two weeks ago Amy and I were able to visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. Amy had visited the mosque before I arrived in the U.A.E. and after seeing her photos I was very excited about our visit.
