Oman - in al-Hamra

Oman - in al-Hamra, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Here is Fred on the top of the Beit al-Safa museum in al-Hamra, one of the most beautiful towns in Oman, where a large number of old houses have been preserved, one of them being turned into a living museum, which was most beautifully presented and where we were given the chance to gring flour, beat coffee beans and make music, try on local clothes and even do some weaving. all in a very nice way. Here is Fred on the roof with our host who calls himself Shere Khan.

Al-Hamra - highly recommended destination -set in a beautiful wadi, surrounded by attractive mountains, the waters giving life to extensive date plantations and other crops such as bananas. The people are very friendly and it was really a perfect place, and not too far from the famous Nizwa.
