Monday – Oman and the Forces of History
Oman has a spectacular coastline that stretches one thousand miles along the Arabian Sea. There are pristine beaches, rugged cliffs, and mountains soaring in the background. The picture above is one I took in Sur, one of it historical ports. Oman capitalized on its access to the sea and has been a seafaring nation for millennia. Through history their ships have sailed to China, India, and Africa following the trade winds. These travels have been immortalized through the legend of Sinbad the Sailor, who Omani folklore claims as a son of Oman.
