Check out the following for some great journalism and personal stories about life and work in the Middle East and Sub Continent. The Oman section is a refreshing mix of stories from all over Oman with some depth into the Dhofar.

Pinaki was responsible for Oman2day running stories of Oman which were not 'Muscat-centric'. In his role as editor/journalist/photographer, Pinaki created an anthology of Oman stories which are unparalleled in energy, honesty and appreciation/respect for the human condition. Be sure to check all sections of the Oman anthology...a wealth of insight and just plain useful information about Life in Oman from the Empty Quarter near the Yemeni border to Musandum and all between.

Must reading for any 'culture traveller'.

A little something for all in the Batinah. A visit to Misfah. A nice Friday outing.

Great Pics. Thanks for the link. Can't get the photo gallery to open...but certainly a colourful site.

OOPS my mistake, the gallery link at the bottom of the home page is functional... Great pics!!!

This is beginning to look like an Oman board.
What a wonderful country...... Every weekend something exciting.

Thanks... there are some fantastic shots there.

The website is unfortunately full of bugs and needs some maintenance. I couldn't get to the gallery through the regular link, but then did get to it through the "obtain pictures" link. But, you had to open each picture individually, so I tried your option hoping to find a slideshow option and now I can't get in at all!! Shocked

I'll try later.
