The special charm of walking through lanes, alleys and old places

There is a very special charm in walking through the old part of any city.This could be anywhere in the world but nothing like it if it happens to be in the city where one has spent the last many years.
So thse are some images that I captured while walking through Matrah Souq here in Muscat one day not so long ago. 
It was an experience indeed and one that I thoroughly enjoyed .

So much so that I don't really have any words to put it better than what Winston Churchill once famously said, "We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us"...........

Spain are the FIFA World Cup Champions and Paul was right!

Paul the Octopus was right all along, and Spin have done it! Winning the World Cup against Netherlands- 1-0 was no mean task.
And this is the man under whose guidance and training they have done it.Del Bosque has put Spain on top pof the World Football map
As I watch the Spanish team line up to receive the trophy I feel a sense of great joy for the Spaniards, already the European Champs and now the World Champs too.

Yet there is a sadness for the team who came oh so close. Netherlands...
Yet tommorrow is another day and who knows, what the future holds for them?
