More pictures from around Muscat.
Supersize me is also found in Arabic. That's the Omani flags hanging from the building. Last week was the Gulf Football(soccer) tournament and Oman made it to the final. They lost the final to Emirates but wow we saw some real fans in this place. Oman won all their games leading up to the final so every time they won all the youngsters drove around the city beeping their horns with flags all over the cars. Some sat on their car windows barely hanging on and shouting as they drive along. Mind you all this is done on the highway as well. They stop at the roundabouts and play their music and just jump around for joy. It was something else. We just avoided going out when the football was on.
I managed to snap a picture of my workplace from the highway. The white building behind the trees!
