Flight from Doha to Muscat is about an hour long. We stayed in muscat and went to the Nizwa friday sheep/goat/cattle market/auction. Animals are walked around in a circle by their owners and the public bids on them. Very lively and lots of animals and people.  We also toured the fruit/veggie, bird, meat, fish and objects market before we headed for further tourism
