Al Hamra is like one very long, wide street with on either side shops, restaurants, garages and other companies. It has a pleasant feel so after our 8 days of cycling we decided to stay for a rest at the “Valley Guest Villa” from where we could overlook the Old City and the mountains but in the back of our minds what we really wanted was to visit the Friday goat market in Nizwa. Apparently it is something not to be missed so we hired a car and saw this amazing event!
Traveling overland from The Netherlands to New Zealand Michele and I, Ruud, met in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal in 1986. She was on her way from Australia to England. One year later we met again in Amsterdam, 2 years later we married and now, 33 years later, we were traveling on our bicycles in India after we left The Netherlands 7 months ago but due to the Covid-19 virus we had to return home. The third of August we left again for the south of France cycling along the Atlantic coast.
