The IECHE Exhibition in Riyadh Saudi Arabia was a massive success but very long with each day lasting 12 hours! My feet were very sore after the 4 days! My picture did however make it into the newspaper in Riyadh, maybe I am famous no?! The students were really friendly and very clever and there was lots of interest in our new Integrated PhD too.

After that it was off to Oman where I managed to pick a rare week of rain in Oman. So much rain in fact that I was rained out of my stand at the GEDHEX exhibition due to lots of leaks! Here I am posing with the machine being used to try and fix the leaks! After speaking to lots of students I did get a little bit of time to see Muscat and went in the pouring rain to see the Royal Opera House in Muscat and the Muttrah Souq. Oman is a really beautiful country.
