Our first day in Oman! Since we landed in the middle of the night we had a rather late start and have used the day to get a first glimpse of the capital Muscat and its surroundings. We have an enormously large rental car to take us around, and our main goal today was the eastern area of the capital. The magnificent Al Alam Palace with its beautiful entrance was followed by the souq (market) in Mutrah. Of course we had to look for the male version of the kaftan, and Henrik actually bought one for himself, as well as a traditional hat!
This day was only a preview, and it left us wanting to see much more of this country!
