Oman: farewell dinner

To mark the departure of my boss, a farewell dinner was held at the Safari Rooftop Grill at the Hyatt. We struggled to reach Shatti due to the homecoming of the Oman football team in the local stadium following their triumphant second place in the final of the Gulf Cup in Abu Dhabi.

Slightly tardy, we took the zebra-striped lift up to the rooftop. The African-themed restaurant is clearly popular with Brits judging by the large number of bottles on the tables reflecting the all-you-can-drink aspect of the menu. The food was confused, uninspiring and pricey at 25 OMR each. The weather outside was perfect, but a little chilly for some of the ladies who are still resorting to thick woollies in this harsh Omani winter.
