Muscat Fort Jalali ./../img/photos/oman/om015_070319_muscat_fortmirani.jpg
How did it look like in former days
Muscat Fort Jalali ./../img/photos/oman/om020_070319_muscat_fortjalali.jpg
Another great fort.
Nizwa Fort ./../img/photos/oman/om023_070321_nizwa_fort.jpg
And the next fort. This time in Nizwa.

And a different perspective.
Nizwa Friday Animal Market ./../img/photos/oman/om069_070323_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
Every Friday there will be a big animal market in Nizwa.
Nizwa Friday Animal Market ./../img/photos/oman/om072_070323_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
There is all sorts of useful and useless stuff available.
Nizwa Friday Animal Market ./../img/photos/oman/om078_070323_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
Besides locals a lot of tourists are around.
Nizwa Friday Animal Market ./../img/photos/oman/om080_070323_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
But the number of tourist is still OK.
Nizwa Friday Animal Market ./../img/photos/oman/om085_070323_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
Just as in the whole of Oman. Refreshing.
Nizwa Friday Animal Market ./../img/photos/oman/om086_070323_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
Oman is not so packed with tourists. Very pleasant.
Nizwa Fort ./../img/photos/oman/om111_070323_nizwa_fort.jpg
To bad that we couldn't see more of beautiful Oman.
Nizwa Fort ./../img/photos/oman/om114_070323_nizwa_fort.jpg
But unfortunately we hadn't enough time to experience more of Oman.
Nizwa Market ./../img/photos/oman/om149_070330_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
Thus, we have contented ourselves with a few days and made the best of it.
Nizwa Market ./../img/photos/oman/om151_070330_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
After the Oman trip I went directly to Bangkok to work.
Nizwa Friday Market ./../img/photos/oman/om152_070330_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
I worked in a big project in Bangkok for one year. Even though the project was not exactly sparkling, but I still had a good time.
Nizwa Animal Market ./../img/photos/oman/om170_070330_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
The market is an exclusive cattle market. It offers all sorts of animals.

A masked woman.
Nizwa Friday Market ./../img/photos/oman/om190_070330_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
An astonished man.
Animal Market ./../img/photos/oman/om214_070330_nizwa_fridayanimalmarket.jpg
You do not see so many veiled women as one might think. Oman is a progressive country.
Fort Hisntamah ./../img/photos/oman/om239_070330_bahla_hisntamahfort.jpg
With such large number of forts in Oman, it seems like there were many conflicts.
It almost looks like an oasis in the desert.
Tanuf, a "city" with many ruins.
Ruined city ./../img/photos/oman/om255_070330_tanuf.jpg
Interesting to walk through the crumbling walls.
There is always something new to discover.
Al Faiqain Fort ./../img/photos/oman/om279_070331_al-faiqain_fort.jpg
Yet another Fort
Jebel Akhdar ./../img/photos/oman/om287_070331_jebelakhdar.jpg
One of the many Jebels in Oman.
Great area around the Jebel Akhdar
Jebel Akhdar ./../img/photos/oman/om296_070331_jebelakhdar.jpg
In the mountains of Jebel Akhdar.
