For Dhofar, for Oman, for the World!

Hello and welcome to Dhofar Eco Bug's inaugural post - the first of many I hope. I'm completely new to blogging so please bear with me whilst I get used to the new world of social media. Given I'm perhaps the only person left on the planet with a mobile phone that functions solely for calls/SMS that could prove quite a challenge!! I've made it as far as facebook, but don't expect me to understand twitter, android or i-anything (except perhaps the pod!).  You might have noticed already that I have a penchant for exclamation marks.  It's an affliction. I'm sorry!

Anyway, I've started this blog because in the relatively short time I've been living in Salalah I've noticed some things that, at best, cause me concern and, at worst, make me downright angry. I hope this blog will provide a platform for people to discuss environmental issues in the region and, most importantly, promote action to effect positive change.  Together we can make a difference!!

Welcome! I do the exclamation marks too! I also combine them, incorrectly, with question marks! Can you believe it?! Perhaps it's a way of emphasising the "wtf" nature of the rhetorical question!

Good! And Welcome!! The more we are the better. Look forward to many interesting topics! (I'm a big fan of exclamation marks too!!)
