Photos were taken during our family road trip from Dubai, UAE to Muscat, Oman and the rural area, where we went to search for wadis - wa·di /ˈwädē/ (in certain Arabic-speaking countries) a valley, ravine, or channel that is dry except in the rainy season. Enjoy the story told in this series of photos and brief explanations under each photo.

Muscat was ruled by various indigenous tribes as well as foreign powers such as the Persians, the Portuguese Empire, the Iberian Union and the Ottoman Empire at various points in its history. Persian influence in architecture seems most apparent to me.
