Celebration colors

The month of November is almost ending. The celebrations for the 43th National Day of Oman, started on 18th November, are slowly ending. In Salalah, in the south of Oman, in Al Salaam street, direction Lulu, where Omani ladies like to shop, I visited small and big shops to look for gadgets, clothes, stickers…bought by the people to color the festivities.

In general u can say that all the gadgets are made in China. The textiles in red, green and white – the colors of the national flag – are Thailand made. The stitching of the clothes and flags are Omani. The stickers for the cars are from a special shop in Muscat.
