Shoof Oman! #026

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

The Omani cap, the Kumma, is popular headwear for both young and old men there.  They come in many designs and colours, and the embroidery can be hand sewn or machined, depending on your budget.

When you are out and about in Oman you will find small shops which sell nothing but Kummas, be sure to go in and SEE the vast array to choose from!

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?
