After Khor Fakkan we headed up another 8km up to a place called Badiyah and stayed at the Sandy Beach Motel, this time actually on the beach. We spent most of our time snorkelling and swimming. At one time Lyall claimed he got stung by a jelly, but I told him he was being a "pussy". After disregarding his childish cries I was floating around in the water and I got one round the neck and on the wrist and hand. I quickly jumped up hopping round the water like an idiot we lyall absoultly pissing himself. Karma.
After swimming all day we headed to the bar and the first alcohol that we had come across since Dubai. We sat around outside in the evening sun drinking beers and Pina Coladas like A-class tourists and laid back smoking water pipes in the evening.
The next day we headed back to Dubai for one night before deciding to head to Oman. We caught the bus that is meant to take 5 hours and were quickly on the border after a quick stop. Unfortunately we were meant to get a stamp at this stop and didn't know. The bus driver just let us sit there like idiots. Anyway we crossed into Oman only to get bounced at the check-point. We had to go back get this stamp and then catch another bus back. We decided it was going to such a pain in the arse so we said screw it and caught a bus back to Dubai. We ended up getting stuck just outside Dubai in Massive traffic Jam. The bus was so hot and they had some crazy Islamic musical on the TVs turned up full bore. It was pretty desperate and we were going out of our minds, insanity. Finally we ended up back in Dubai and went out for a few beers.
