Sultan Qaboos University, Oman

2007_3_31_Sultan_Qaboos_University,_Oman_files_shapeimage_2.pngSpent all Thursday in Miami, all Thursday night and Friday travelling (via Paris and Bahrein). Opening ceremonies on Saturday morning, had a delicious smokey nut chocolate glop when sitting in a formal square of red chairs with the Vice Chancellor and luminaries. My quote from the Koran, provided by Adel Gamal, was well received: “Do not envy anyone except in two cases: A person whom God has given him wealth and he spends it righteously, and a person whom God has given him Wisdom and he acts according to it and teach it to others”. Vice-chancellor suggested we should have a memorandum of understanding.
