Fishermen shacks Masirah Island.

Walk along most of the beaches in Masirah and eventually you will come across these shacks built of anything that can be scrounged; either from the sea or abandoned by the military.

It can be quite interesting rummaging around, looking at what has been used – oil drums filled with sand were quite popular after the departure of the RAF in the early 70’s.

I remember a rather large pile of abandoned materials disappearing within less than 24 hours after our American colleagues  left,  at the end of the ‘first Gulf War’ .

Mind you I did get rather a lot of ‘MREs’ or (meals rejected by Ethiopians) so should not be that critical of the local fishermen.  🙂
