    Hi Andy
    Sorry, this is a different topic.
    I would like to know if there is anyone in Muscat - a doctor or lecturer - who can teach anatomy. A young boy needs some private coaching or just a few sessions. If you know of anyone who can help, please let me know.
    Appreciate any related info.

    Nice blog , friendly people .I am in usa now well settled.Before i was in Oman for ten years
    as a supervisor in a private company .
    Oman is a GREAT place to be for any law abiding citizen .I am surprised at the many changes in oman since i left .
    Omanis are very simple and good people even a VIP if you come across as i did sometimes , will never show himself as a vip or behave as one . Cost of living is low . But when i got married i resigned and moved back to the US since in those days i will say there was hardly any social life , especially for a women . Now it may be different .
