and if you put them together, this is what it boils down to.
On one particularly tiring and long day, the very instant my head hit the pillow (insert: a sandy pair of rather grim trousers) the valley boomed with the rasping bellow of an Arabian Leopard.
I'm quite proud of our work in Oman, we went really not knowing very much, but it turned out wonderfully in the end. We worked (and are still working) on a lot of projects..
It's been a month since we arrived back at Heathrow, weary from the expedition, but elated at how much we managed to achieve in that time..
When we planned this expedition, we had an ambitious (and in all honesty, unrealistic) objective. To find the Arabian Leopard, one of the rarest cats in the world.
Prior to planning an expedition to the country, I knew embarrassingly little about Oman. I still don't know very much..
