Shoof Oman! #005

شوف (arabic) shoof: look! see! (english)

Oman is, as we say in Scotland, “mad keen on fitba”.  Even the most remote village has a rough football pitch, often with goalposts, which comes alive with football players in the hour before sunset prayer, and no visitor can truly say they have “seen” Oman without witnessing a game. This photo was taken on the beach at Salalah in the month of December.

The Sultanate of Oman is a truly wonderful country, full of beautiful places to visit and interesting things to see.  Some tourists are content to spend their holidays within the confines of their luxurious Arabian styled 4 star hotels, and there is nothing wrong with that.  However if you get yourself out there you might find something unusual, quirky or bizarre to photograph and as a bonus, any Omanis you encounter will bowl you over with their kindness and hospitality.

I have traveled extensively throughout the Sultanate and not seen half of all there is to see. Will you follow me and شوف Oman?
