This week we get Saturday and Sunday off (equivalent to Mon. and Tues.) for the Prophet’s Birthday, so on our long weekend my host family decided to get out of the city. We went to Fanja- in the governate of Dakhilyah (literally means internal in Arabic, shown in pink below) It’s a beautiful rural town, very near to Nizwa.

It’s about an hour outside of Muscat, and it’s a very beautiful drive through mountains and exotic landscapes. Once we got there, we played in the wadi, which was flowing due to recent rains.

A support for the system of channels that run throughout Oman carrying water to towns and farms.
