It's Oman's 45th National Day! Everyone's celebrating, and this morning a quick trip to the bank made me regret actually having had breakfast on the 18th of November - what am I, just off the boat? Of course there will be food everywhere. Here's what I found at my favourite branch of National Bank of Abu Dhabi, where one of the managers (pictured) is a also a baker, and everyone is kind - I was given three badges and a special National Day scarf, had my picture taken with the whole team, downed four Omani coffees, and activated my credit card. I love Oman. Have a great National Day!
