As once said by Jane Birkin “If you fall in love with a country and its people, that makes any country warm to you” Oman and its people are no different. The  Omanis are a proud people, but their pride is devoid of the arrogance frequently associated with awakening nationalism. They are also unaffectedly friendly towards strangers, despite their isolation in the pastThe people of Oman are surprisingly cosmopolitan: a mixture of Arab clans swept together by the cross currents of migration, ancient and modern, and spiced with descendants of quite different peoplesIndian, Baluchi and Zanzabarifrom across the sea.
