This is just one of many beautifully decorated mosque towers or minarets in Oman. This one, like the home above is in Ah Seeb near Muscat, the capitol of Oman.
This is quite the most elaborate private dwelling we saw in Oman -
There are more camels in Oman than you can shake a stick at. The darned things are everywhere and more valuable than any car -
So here’s one of the famous Oman camels enjoying it’s normal food, yeah! (Er, that’s cardboard!).
There was an Omani restaurant with normal looking but actually somewhat flimsy walls since they were packed with cardboard for a filling -
Here’s the original of the Bus Shelter on the front page (3DCreations) as you can see it’s pretty mucky looking, I prefer my version, but it’s certainly an interestingly designed shape.
And here’s another Omani Bus Shelter. They are different shapes in different parts of the country. This one has some rather nice fretwork which appears to be on alternate arched openings.
And this is a coffee shop -
Some firms (Marks & Sparks) pop up everywhere and I think that’s “Toys R Us” next door -
Gateway to Oman?
Ian and his pals out in Oman unkindly (but fairly accurately) called it: “The Tomb of the Unknown Worker”, but I think it’s actually “Soldier”.
There’s a massive “Welcome to Muscat” sign near by, so I thought of it as
The Gateway to Oman, cos it LOOKS like a massive gate.
