Location: Salalah, Oman

The day started pretty early for several enterprising shipmates that went on a 6am run this morning, and for our chefs who were working hard in the galley to make some delicious pancakes for breakfast. A quick scheduling meeting followed breakfast cleanup and then everyone had the day free to explore Salalah. Most made their way into town with a few adventures along the way. When all were back onboard for dinner we were regaled with humorous stories of taxi drivers, restaurants, convenience stores, ATMS, and ice cream. It sounds like everyone had a great time on shore. We finished up this evening with a movie for the Student Leadership class and now people are winding down with tea on deck, studying, and sleep before anchor watch.
