The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Oh man… It’s Oman!

OmanForgive the poor pun in the title but this wonderful surprise arrived today from Cresalde (I hope I spelled the name right, it’s difficult to read) in Oman. My beloved postcrossing angel (he is an angel, for sure), Ruhan, arranged for this specific card to be sent to me during a swap he was doing with the Omani and he knows me well enough to see this card and understand that it exactly the sort of card I love and I was certainly surprised to receive it! For once he managed to keep the secret! It is perfect for me! It shows Al-Sebani village although, having tried to research it, I can’t find any information on it, other than historical villages like this exist all over the country, built purely from mud and natural resources, reflecting the traditional Omani ways of life. What a fantastic card! A new favourite!

Edit: Since I’ve had requests to show the elusive Omani stamps, here they are!
