Thursday Doors: Oman

Usually there is only one main ingress and egress to Arab compounds. Privacy and protection are important, and most families live inside high walls. I think this is part of the reason that doors take on added significance. There are broad expanses of tall plain plaster walls, often only punctuated by the door. Here are my Thursday Doors.

  1. “My parts” are many, but these are from about 7 years ago. I had the pleasure of working there for a year. I always encourage people to travel there. Yes, it is spellbinding and jar dropping and all the other cliches put together!
