The Sultanate of Oman?

Mihai went for an interview in Dublin for a position at a military college in the Sultanate of Oman. This is a country I did not hear of before he received this job interview. Its neighbors are Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. My brother is the ideal person to hang out with if you want to have an exciting life!

We do not know any of the details yet, but it appears that he will get the job - or at least this is what he understood from the interview. He would be department head in physics at an university in Muscat, the capital of Oman.  Once/IF he receives an offer, we will try to understand the contract and the region better. I am curious and hopeful that such a position will come with the freedom to build a good physics department, but Mihai seemed very worried and afraid to go to a 'military institution', which would involve teaching the mechanics of missiles and other related stuff.

Update: I still want to visit Oman or Dubai at some point, but Mihai never got the job offer. Maybe we'll visit next winter.
