Muscat, The Start of the Journey.November 4, 2017 in Oman
There was a little problem connecting with our guide/driver this morning, but we worked it our quickly.

The roads are new, like most of the buildings. This seems to be a prosperous place.
We had a 2 hour drive to Nizwa where we got to see various local markets, starting with a fish market. The Omani people are generous with the free samples, and we sampled fish, various dates, other fruits and bread. The market is and has been for years, in the shelter of Nizwa Fort. We took the opportunity to check out the fort too!Read more
