AN­OTHER OF THE STOPS

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Journal -

we made was the city of Nizwa, to see its fa­mous fort. It was an event­ful visit, first of all be­cause we ac­ci­den­tally camped in a car park the night be­fore we ar­rived; we didn’t re­alise un­til the morn­ing that the nice space we had picked was meant for cars. There was also some kind of reen­act­ment event go­ing on the day we vis­ited. We were sur­prised to find sword-fight­ing and weav­ing dis­plays, and ev­ery­one in 17th-cen­tury cos­tumes. There was a jam-packed souq out­side, where we stocked up on dates, cof­fee and lo­cal spices be­fore mov­ing on.
