Favorites were: Tareq Rajab Museum in Kuwait, visiting the Grand Mosque in Bahrain, in particular due to the young woman who patiently explained Islam (in brief) and answered our questions, Bahrain's excellent National Museum, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai (actually most everything in Dubai), the dhow cruise in Khasab, Sultan Qaboos Mosque and Old Souk in Muscat, the visit to Sur, our stay in the Wahiba desert, our drives in the Al Hajar Mountains around Nizwa, the coast near Salalah. The museum's main purpose is to examine the relationship between the sea, Kuwait's inhabitants and how the two were dependant on each other.
