Rummy's Scribblings ]. since I moved to Oman, however, I never put two and two together about who she actually was until, like, last year;). Because I'm smart. ....But I remember when I heard there was an Omani woman on the Antarctica team of Freezing Omanis I totally cheered inside, and was like, hell yes, thank you! ...Not that I would ever really want to go to Antarctica myself, having grown up in Canada;p. Cold sucks to me. But I'm glad she did it, for all the women who dream to go somewhere and do something, but it might not be the most "appropriate dream" within their family or tribe or culture. Being a female adventurer is something rare in Oman, and it would make me think Rumaitha a super stylish sister indeed, even if she like, wore parkas all the time, or a paper bag. (RANDOM: "Paper Bag Princess" by Robert Munsch is one of the most awesome little girl's books ever).

Rumaitha has that cute mix-and-match style that admire in Omani women in general. I love her coffee+ a quote shots. Shoes+coffee+scarf style+words of wisdom? Climbing mountains? Travel? Adventure? Food? What's not to like?
