Our small Christmas tour of Oman guests arrived into nice pleasantly warm sunny weather.
We travelled into Nizwa and enjoyed the town’s extensive suq and we all managed to make the rocky ascent up to the UNESCO tombs of Al Ayn.
Flying into Salalah, we visited the wonderful 2,000-year-old UNESCO site at Khor Rori. Fortunately, there was bright clear weather so that all could enjoy picnics outside.
Earlier during Eid I enjoyed the atmosphere of one of the local ‘hapta’ suqs in the country.
There are held around Eid specifically for gift buying. Of course, dressing in traditional clothes is a must – and here some girls are dressed in traditional dress visiting friends on the occasion.
