A Day in Nizwa

Internet access has been a bit of a challenge so here’s a quick update. After our time in Wahiba Sands we continued cycling west to the city of Nizwa, on the edge of the Jabal al Akhdar Mountains – The Green Mountains. We took another day off in Nizwa to have a look around and attend to things like laundry and a long-overdue haircut for me.

Here are some photos from Nizwa. We have travelled much further since then and had some challenging mountain roads along the way. Another update with more details will follow as soon as possible.
