Thought for the day….” Sell a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man how to fish, you ruin a good business opportunity”.
” An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind”.
Off to southern Oman for the photo today, and to a town bordering the Persian Gulf. Oman, officially called the Sultanate of Oman, has a population of around 4 million people. The largest city and capital is Muscat. Oman is often hot and dry and suffers water shortages, resulting in little agriculture. Oil is the main export (around 98 % of the total) but this does mean that petrol/gas is VERY cheap if you rent a car there. Best of all for local workers is that Oman has no income tax and also that healthcare and education are free. And unlike some other areas in this region, it is a safe country, even when driving. At the moment, it is not on the tourist radar, so is worth a visit before it becomes a mainstream destination. Last light of the day in the photo, just before the sun disappeared below the horizon. Another day over.
and another from the archives…a close up of a woman’s face in Cape Verde.
