Hot Springs - Ath Thowra
Just as our
handy-dandy LP promised, there were kids (of both the human and goat species)
playing in the water that emerged from the wadi walls.
What the LP did
not suggest was that there were dead-flesh eating fish in the waters!!
We put our feet in by the pool edge and 100s of little fish immediately
latched on to our feet and began nibbling at us. Once you got over the
initial tickle, it was better than a fancy spa:) We bet they pay
big bucks for this treatment somewhere in the world!
We ran into a group of Omani boys
- high school or college aged by the looks of them - who were out dinging
around in the stream, and while they were snapping pictures of each other,
they were glad to smile for a shot or two.
