Muscat – visit to the Grand Mosque

December 7, 2016

We had free time to wander around and take photos. An hour and a half was easily spent exploring the passages around the main building trying to see and document everything before tourist buses arrived. As it got hotter ( especially under my scarf ) we went back to our hotel to enjoy the last hours of sunshine. We played like kids in the pool before the sun disappeared ( it is dark here at 17:30 this time of the year ) and went for a last dinner in our favourite Candle Cafe on the Al Qurum beach, then sadly headed to the airport. We watched the street light decorations in the Omani colours as we drove under a watchful eye of the Sultan’s gigantic photos appearing on the buildings along the way. We said goodbye to our patient friend Fahed with an ‘inshallah‘ ( hopefully/if it’s God’s will ) that we would return again one day soon.
