Awesome Earth People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
I'm really looking forward to getting back to Oman to explore it some more. I absolutely loved it while I was there. Sometimes, one might expect (if you watch the news that tries to scare you all the time) that countries in the middle east don't have the nicest people. Well, it's just not true. And, when it comes to Oman, they might just be tied for the nicest people in the world with Japan!
It's amazing what people carry on their heads here! I noticed they start training the girls quite early with lighter loads. They actually put a little ring on their heads (sort of like a bean bag) that sort of flattens out the surface area so they can put anything on top. We went out to watch the sunset and saw these ladies walking miles back to their homes across the sand. It makes you wonder why people in the modern West complain about doing the laundry.
I usually don't post photos like this, but I actually take them all the time! I do like to get the bigger, epic shots. However, while wandering around, I sometimes try to focus on little details here and there. Also, there's something about Europe where small vignettes like this just kinda FEEL European... you know what I mean?
