Shoof Oman! #006

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

Oman has many, many goats.  1,543,707 according to the 2004/2005 agricultural census.  They are kept by families as well as commercial farmers and you cannot go far in the populated areas of Oman without encountering a few.  They have little road sense, although it has to be said more than camels, so always keep an eye out for them when driving!

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?
