You Know You’ve Lived in the Arabian Gulf When…


August 2008

When I returned to the United States after spending two months in Salalah, Oman, I went shopping with my best friend, Meaghan.  I knew I had been in the Gulf for too long when I looked at a shirt that was my size, and exclaimed with a combination of surprise and disgust, “This is my size?  This looks like a child’s shirt!”

I guess after spending a summer in an abaya, my thoughts on modesty had been slightly skewed…



  1. while in Oman did you try the velvet Salalah style dresses as well

  2. Yes! They were beautiful. I have pictures of those as well, I’ll try to post them sometime soon!
