The Quiet Suq

The Mutrah Suq was quiet this morning. Our purchase of a small jar of frankincense and one Christmas ornament will hardly make a ripple in the economy. Highly dependent on oil, the ministers of this and that are trying to shift the economy more to tourism and manufacturing. Bloody expensive here so I don't see how they'll manage it. The Suq by the way is full of Indian merchants selling trinkets mostly made in India.
