Saturday Snapshot--December 18, 2010

This meme is hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books

To participate in Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don't post random photos that you find online.

This Friday I am flying from Santa Barbara to Muscat, Oman (via London) so on Saturday we'll 30,000 feet in the air. It's such a long trip, but we arrive early Sunday morning and it will be nice to have a full day of sunshine ahead of us. I thought I would post a photo from a previous trip to Oman today in keeping with where I am headed. This photo was taken inside the Muscat Souq (market), which is one of my favorite places to go in Muscat. I love the small winding allies, the vendors, the goods that are packed into stores and hang out into the walk-ways. They sell everything from plastic gee-gaws to beautiful traditional clothing and crafts. And, if you watched the season of The Amazing Race which just ended last weekend, you saw this souq when the racers had to find one of their clues in Muscat!
