One of my favourite photos is this of Arab Horses in Oman decked out in traditional silver. Marco Polo wrote about them in his book ‘The Travels’ – “and the merchants take a great number of Arab horses to that market (of India from Al Balid)”
Do you live in Oman? Would you like a great price on the book ‘Walking through History’? Its all about Oman’s 4 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Bat, Al Ayn and Al Kutm; Bahla; 5 Aflaj Systems and the Land of Frankincense.
Filled with unique colour images and well researched information – this is the first Coffee Table Book about Oman’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites .
If you want it as a gift or to enjoy yourself – Crème de la Crème magazine have decided to help support the book’s launch.
Pick up a copy of the new February issue of Crème de la Crème magazine. Then take the magazine into their office of the building on ’ al Elm Street‘ in Al Khuwair ‘(opposite the Platinum Hotel off Dohat al Adab Street ) – and you will get Rial Omani 5/- off a copy of the book – its already in the Al Roya warehouse for the launch on February 14th.
As the 18th May is International Museum Day I thought
it would be nice to have a picture from Oman’s Land of Frankincense Museum in Salalah, probably my favourite Museum in Oman.
If you are interested in learning more about Frankincense, Oman is the source of Boswellia Sacra and my book ‘The Land of Frankincense’ has over 180pages about this mystical product and the land it grows in.
