speaking arabic in oman

"I have an obsession with Arabic that comes, I suppose, from learning it as a second language.  Words are imbued with both elegance and logic, chiseled by their sense of having moved through time, history, and generations.  A beauty ensues, as words slowly unfurl their mysteries, shifting their meanings ever so gradually.  A richer language than English, Arab boasts a vocabulary that can convey any description in a single word"
