drawings about traffic - Oman

drawings about traffic

Muscat, exhibition contest drawings

Favorite thing: Because of the week of the traffic there was also a contest of drawings.
In the shopping mall we had a look at the results, presented in an exhibition. There were a lot of other visitors.
I liked the drawings very much, learning something about traffic in Oman and local customs. Themes in the drawings were, wearing your safety belt, not biking between cars, being aware of camels on the road and more.
I put some pictures of these nice drawings in a travelogue, so have a look.

Muscat, week of the traffic - Oman

Muscat, week of the traffic

Muscat, week of the traffic

Favorite thing: In the shopping mall, where we heard the bag-pipe music, were some festivities because of the ''week of the traffic''.
We saw a lot of officials of the ministry of traffic. Like legally is required, all the employees of the ministry wear the traditional dishdasha, a long dressshirt, mostly white for the government.
They were also wearing their traditional khanjar (knife) and a turban.

Muscat, bagpipes - Oman

Muscat, bagpipes

Muscat, ice-skating and bagpipes

Favorite thing: In greater Muscat we not only visited the older parts and museums, but we also went to some modern shopping malls. We even visited an ice-skating hall, the coolest place in town ! In one of the shopping malls we heard bagpipe-music.
So you can really say, Muscat is a place of contrasts and surprises !!
