Sumida River, Minato Park and Yarakucho

We left Tsukiji Fish Market and cycled along the Sumida River. The afternoon sun provided warm light and made the many different buildings of the city look somewhat soft. Only at the end of the park did we see the sign that said it is not allowed to ride bicycles. Fortunately there was nobody around, so we luckily didn’t offend anybody. We returned them near Yarakucho Station and took the Metro back Nogizaka Station, where we started our journey in the morning.

Oman | Muscat, Mutrah and Qurum Beach

Oman FlagOn our first day in the Sultanate of Oman, we had a look at some of the various sights in and around Muscat. Driving from our Hotel in Al Wadi Al Kabir to the old part of the city via Sidab Street yielded some stunning views of the rough mountains and the glistening sea.

Leaving our car in one of the free parking areas, we walked towards the palace of Sultan Quaboos bin Said al Said – on polished stone sidewalks, mind you. They create nice reflections, but must be a nightmare when wet. In a country with an average of 100 mm of rain per year… who cares about slippery conditions? Dust is a concern, however, and therefore the sidewalks are kept clean all the time.
