Touring the Gulf States

We are taking a two-week tour around the Persian (or Arabian, depending on your perspective) Gulf, visiting Muscat and Salalah in Oman, Doha (Qatar), Dubai and Abu Dhabi (UAE) and Bahrain. I'm just posting select pictures as I can on the road and will fill in the many blanks after we get back home to Riyadh.
