Oman


I lived in Oman for one semester while doing an internship at the German University of Technology (GUtech).

At an omani wedding (day 2). The image shows a part of a large tent in which the families of the new married couple formally eat together for the first time. We were invited to this gathering the day before, while we were at the groom’s traditional celebration. The day before the tent was used for the bride’s party (which tends to be a lot more westerly then the grooms’s).

View from half the way up to the spring above Wakan village. It is a very nice path that leads up to the spring through green gardens and perfect view points looking far into the valley.

I don’t have the places name, but in a nutshell{{:}} it’s a pretty deep crack. It was a crazy drive up there with several great view points.
