Facets of Oman 3

Nizwa mosque shot from Nizwa fortress – even more gorgeous in person. This isn’t the best photo, but I like the bird in it:

The desert weaver had cuffs she had embroidered herself. Cuffs everywhere were a work of art:

The women welcomed photos – this desert woman was the mother-in-law of the weaver. She was delightful.
