Friday Flickr – Muscat

A desert city by the sun. Friendly people, good food and a fascinating culture and history. What more could I want?

Following on from my Friday Flickr album on the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque a couple of weeks ago, I thought I’d put together an album from the rest of my stay in Muscat.

I only had a week and spent most of my time in the city, though I did have one day out in the desert when a friend of a friend kindly took the day off work and drove me around.

Staying with friends who live and work in Oman showed me a different side to Oman than the one I’d have got had I stayed in a posh hotel and not known anyone. I did some touristy things, but a lot of my time was spent joining in with expats and locals (predominantly men) doing the things they do in their free time.

I’d love to go back and explore more of the country. And I’m desperate to spend a night out in the desert under the stars.
