Being asked at very short notice to go on an all expenses paid morris dancing trip to Oman seemed a bit too surreal to be true and yet ten of Pecsaetan set off on 25th Feb along with the Newcastle Kingsmen, Boggart’s Breakfast, Ouse Washes Molly dancers and some clog dancers on a six day trip of a lifetime. We did two shows (Monday in Muscat and Wednesday in Salalah) and were looked after extremely well in 5 star hotels. Highlights were the shows themselves, late night singing in the rooftop bar, a tour of the biggest mosque in Muscat after being properly attired in muslim head scarves by the taxi driver, swimming, relaxing, dancing (and drinking the $1000 bar tab) in the pool, camel spotting out of the bus windows and meeting our narrator and singer Milli Moonstone who we’ve adopted as an honorary Pecsaetan. A truly unforgettable trip!
