    These Oman forts are appealing in color, nearly all of them built with light yellowish-tan bricks, made from local stone, clay or mud. The brick was sloshed over with a desert-colored smooth stucco layer that was perfectly waterproof & architecturally graceful to the eye. Crumbling Portuguese forts and tranquil fishing villages line the coast’s secluded shorelines, magnificent desert dunes and oases mottle the interior and traditionally garbed Bedouins can be spied drifting through the spice-filled souqs.
