Walkabout ...2/4

At the entrance of the Heritage Village , in the shade of a tree sits an old fashioned wooden trunk with brass embellishments called "sandook".

A Traditional fishing boat was on display.

















It was almost dusk and a row of lanterns lit up the place . Though they are traditionally lit with wicks ,these ones had electric bulbs instead. But they looked pretty nevertheless.


The doors in the picture are of the kind one would find on the houses in the interior remote villages that still are fairly traditional in their architecture.





















I walked on to a group of sheds that demonstrated traditional Arabic fare and decided to try out the savoury pancake called "khubooz (bread) ragag "

Sorry I'm late, the weekend was a hectic one with wedding and the flu bug.

That wooden chest drawers is beautiful. I like country style furniture but The Man isn't a fan of those. Wish I had one of those in my bedroom.

Enjoy the rest of your trip before heading home :)

Hope the flu didn't affect you and you were able to enjoy the wedding to the fullest.
The wooden chest is truly lovely.
