Shoof Oman! #024

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

Now it’s not unusual (well at least not in the UAE, Oman or Saudi) to spot camels in a Toyota or Nissan pickup, however I had to do a double take when I spotted these two camels with their headgear on!

It’s cold in the back of a truck in January and their ears would get rather cold when driven along the highway at 120kph, so their kind owner has taken steps to keep their heads warm.  Only in the Gulf….

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 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?
