The Monsoon Shack
Back in Oman we knew it would still be monsoon season when we arrived here, so with respectable foresight we bought ourselves a monsoon cover. Actually, thinking about it, it wasn’t foresight… it was in anticipation of the Omani monsoon which is supposed to sweep the country in August but didn’t.
Anyway, luckily we had it onboard with us when we got here, and after a few soakings on our first day, we erected it on the second day. Now we could tie up in any shanty town (if the rivers were deep enough ) here and hardly stand out at all.
It sort of gives us a place to dry clothes too, but we have to keep a careful eye out for squalls which have a habit of carrying clothes away, no matter how many pegs we use!
