Lonely Corridors

Arabic script covers the arches between enclosures

Taking a stroll around the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat, it seemed taxing to find a quiet spot without tour groups. Even in the far corners, the guides knew where their group would capture a nice view of the dome atop the mosque. So everywhere we went, a group loomed behind us like a shadow. When we did find a quiet spot, some of the covered walkways were beautifully eerie.

Dead end, but a quiet one at that

A couple escape the crowds far away under a walkway

The sun encroaches underneath the walkway warming any cool areas left
