A small procession was moving down the street, women and men together, blocking traffic. Some of the men were firing shots from ancient rifles. What could be it possibly mean?
In that moment we remembered a conversation amongst the diving instructors – a huge wedding was about to take place in Khasab. Quick Iike weasels we turned around and followed them. By the time we caught up with them, the men had gathered in front of the groom’s home. We kept our distance but were motioned to come closer and Gilles was even allowed to take photos and videos of the dancing, singing and playing the drums. Women were watching from the windows and roofs but were not anywhere near, so Heidi also stayed on the edge taking photos of the children in their festive attire.
Finishing with this grand experience made Khasab our absolute favorite! Our spirits were so high that even its castle – the eighth we visited in Oman – got us excited.
