Interior decoration of rooms in abandoned village of Ibri – a rather more important village on the camel route
between Muscat and Al Buraimi.
A lot of things were traded in Ibri – not all exactly above-board in the old days. In the 1800’s, conflicting descriptions were made by visitors: from it being called a place of vagabonds, scallywags & thieves to the exact opposite, a most friendly & hospitable place. Somewhere in between was probably nearer the truth.
Today it is a modern thriving town that makes visitors very welcome.
