Happy Renaissance Day Oman: In case you are wondering, what exactly Renaissance day is, it is the day His Majesty, Sultan Qaboos ibn Said took over from his father, Sultan Taimur. This happened on July 23rd, 1970. This move effectively ended the country's isolation and began the phase of using Oman's oil revenue for modernization and development: i.e. universal education, healthcare, and the building of roads and infrastructure such as water and sewers. A lot has changed in Oman since the 70s, even since the early 90s, most of it for the better in terms of access to health, education, and improved living conditions for many wilayats (towns).

And since we are not likely to be posting again until well after Eid, please enjoy your last few nights of Ramadan, and have a lovely and safe Eid holiday:).
