The Sultanate of Oman is a country in Southwest Asia. It borders the United Arab Emirates in the northwest, Saudi Arabia in the west, and Yemen in the southwest.
The oil discovery, in the 60's, started to transform this asleep country. Today, Oman is torn by modern roads, industrialized and rich ( Omanization ). The tradition still dominates life of the 2,5 million inhabitants: strong religion ( muslim ), traces of tribal loyalties and a very characteristic culture.
