My name is Asma and I live in a village close to (Sohar) city which is almost 2 hours from (Muscat) the capital city of Oman. Me and my husband, live in a small house surrounded by farms and neighbors. we live close to the cost so in a hot summer it will be great to swim.In the village everyone knows everyone and we live close to each other. You may experience the life through 3 generations who live here too. I bit you will like it!
we are people who love to explore different cultures and we hope we can share knowledge and experiences with volunteers who might also open our eyes to a whole new world.
we have a farm and it is full of banana trees and date palms and now we are trying to grow our seasonal vegetables which might need some help too. we have a place for fire camps for winter and it is great place to see the shining stars. this place is the semi of how people used to live in the past.
if you are lucky you might attend our family gatherings if you are interested in the culture maybe weddings too! or our yearly festivals ad celebration if it happened and you are there :)
if you are interested in learning Arabic from the scratch i can teach you that. if you are social and like to explore the culture and hospitality here just come. you can learn about dates and bananas ad how to make vegan food the Omani style.
