Behold a TREASURE trove of history’s antiquities
Dubai holds time in equilibrium, where glass skyscrapers from a distant future nestle delicately between a mosque’s golden domes from a Bedouin past. To the south, wafting aromas beckon merchants and rulers alike, promising treasures greater than gold on the shores of Salalah’s land of frankincense. More beguiling still, the limestone cliffs of “Kalliste, the Fairest One” are adorned with pearly Cycladic villages — the crown atop the ashy tresses of Santorini’s black beaches.
