Sohar: old fort and souq

Took a trip with the homie Mo to Sohar on this long weekend of Isra and Miraj. We walked around the old fort, which is currently under construction, and the brand new souq, which is finished, but as of yet, devoid of any tenants. Got some wonderful pics of some older guys playing hawalis, (Swahili: bao). In a couple years there the express road to Sohar should be complete, and you will no longer have to battle it out against trucks, roundabouts, construction, speeding motorists in the left lane and other inconveniences of the narrow two-lane road that runs from Muscat to Sohar. Also, it is almost time for ratb!
