The old houses of Birkat al-Mouz
We met a chap called Diyab ion Nizwa and he suggested that we go to visit his town of Birkat al-Mouz, which was supposedly close by. We did not find the town but ended up in the very beautiful Al Hamra instead. This was on Fred's last day but on my last day, I took the car back down to Nizwa and made a point of stopping at Birkat al-Mouz on the way. I was thrilled to find a collection of old houses up on the hill to the right of the road. The houses are more abandoned than the ones in Al Hamra but still show the beauty of these older Omani houses. These are the impressions I came back with.
