Speshal parking & a nice mosque

So again, these shorter hours make blogging some what harder to do, what with the same amount of work needing to get done in less time. But here are two nuggets for you.

First up is a lovely example of what happens when you go too fast in a residential neighbourhood:

Spectacular job I must say. Well at least the car's parked in some shade!

On Friday, the wife and I took a trip down to Muttrah and to the souq in order to find a nice battery powered knock-off watch. Got a lovely thin one for 8 rials, very pleased with it - something nice and basic for every-day use. However, the souq was heaving, more so even for a normal Friday night. We ended up in some back streets a bit lost, but then happend upon this rather nice looking mosque:

It's almost oriental, right? Anyway, we thought it looked great so wanted to share it with you.
