OMAN - Land of Frankincense

"The frankincense trees of Wadi Dawkah and the remains of the caravan oasis of Shisr/Wubar and the affiliated ports of Khor Rori and Al-Baleed vividly illustrate the trade in frankincense that flourished in this region for many centuries, as one of the most important trading activities of the ancient and medieval world." -

Because of this offered postcard, I learned that there's actually a Frankincense Tree!
Isn't it cool? ^-^
Thank you so much Sir Cres for completing my UNESCO postcards from Oman! :)

Postcard 2

A postcard of Oman from Jean Pierre of France sent from Dubai, UAE.
Thank you so much, JP! It's cute reading messages written in Filipino! ^-^

Postcard 3

Another postcard showing a Frankincense tree which produces aromatic resin
used in making perfumes and incense.
Thank you so much Jean Pierre for remembering to send me a postcard
while you were in Oman!
