Friday, April 27: This week’s A-Z challenge by Frizztext is the letter R: “introduce one photo of your own archive with a “R” keyword for example RAINY DAY or RIOTS, REVERENDS or RESTAURANTS, ROYAL WEDDINGS or ROUGH, RUSSIAN dolls, RAINBOWS or REVOLVERS etc.”
I’m featuring the RUINS I visited this weekend in Al Ayn, Oman. These 21 tombs are an amazing collection of Bronze Age necropolises, spectacularly set on a narrow ridge top with the dramatic Jebel Misht, “Comb Mountain,” in the background.
This is the third time I have visited these tombs; the most recent time was just last week after Oman had a week of heavy rains. That time I was unable to walk up the ridge because of a flooded wadi between me and the ridge. This time the wadi was dry, so we were able to climb up the ridge to observe the ruined tombs up close.
