Hi,

so the new coins have started to circulate. This one waits for my next visit to Salalah once we can fly down again to visit my daughter and her family.

The lettering 'Baisa' is tiny! I cannot see how it would serve a purpose this way. Very strange.

You have my sympathy, Ole. It's a long wait and Zoom and the other platforms go only so far. We ought to get the vaccine some time this year, provided the pace picks up considerably.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Hi Peter,

it's difficult for sure, but lucky enough whatsapp works with Oman (not skype, though) and for OKC skype is working, so we can see the grandchildren and talk to our far away families.

I remember in 1976, when I went to Mexico, snail mails with the families in DK and FRA, telex with the head quarters in Munich! All those beautiful stamps I sent to my wife from Australia in 1975 (6 months down under)!

Take care
