Oman revives the memories of a village devoured by the desert.




The encroachment of the sand leaves little evidence that เกมสล็อตฟรี Oman's village of Wadi al-Murr ever existed. But curious former residents and visitors are coming to discover a small, desert-surrounded village.Salem al-Arimi, originally from space, looks out into the nostalgia of the vast space.As told by the local elders "All the houses in the village were overrun by the sand that attacked them 30 years ago, forcing the villagers to leave," he said.The tops of the buildings and sections of the stone walls pop up here and there, testifying to those who once lived here.The desert is expanding across the globe, driven by climate change and populations affected.There are few weapons to fight back.The residents of Vadi al-Mer, largely dependent on pastoral activities, had to abandon their villages and increase the number of immigrants to the cities.


Nostalgia -


Wadi al-Murr is located at the bottom of a canyon southwest of the capital, Muscat, nearly 400 kilometers (250 miles) cut off the main road and can only be reached on a long, rough road.Its separation, along with the electric and water grids, contributed to the slide into confusion.But that doesn't prevent former residents from returning to visit with hiking enthusiasts in the region's desert wilderness.Former resident Mohammed al-Ghanbousi said the moving sand dunes have again revealed some of the dunes after they were covered in sand.This phenomenon encourages "Nostalgic people visit a village where the structure can still stand because it was built from stone," he said.The village has just been included on a hiking tour and it also attracts photo enthusiasts. The mosque located inside the village, which in its heyday had about 30 houses and 150 residents, is one building that reappears.Mohammed al-Alaoui said that when his mother learned that some houses had returned, she asked him to take her back.She always wanted to go, and she loved being there as she shared her memories of the old days and brought tears to her," he said.


- Tourism -

Rashed al-Ameri was one of Omani tourists who discovered a small village swallowed by the desert.He traveled hundreds of kilometers from Sur with two friends wanting to see Wadi al-Murr.Oman, which seeks to diversify its oil-dependent economy, is trying to develop its tourism industry by taking advantage of its rich heritage, beautiful coastline and beautiful mountain geography.The Sultan attracted three million foreign tourists in 2019, but like elsewhere, the new coronavirus outbreak has reduced tourists to a single drop in 2020.Ameri is one of those who believe that Wadi al-Murr can easily be included in Oman's tourist routes.What surprised me was that the force of nature could wipe out an entire village," he said.And what's more remarkable is how this place has old walls to resist these assaults.
