Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

The week’s Photo Challenge theme is “letters“. Yesterday, after work when the sun was setting I went for a stroll in my neighborhood to take a photo with “letters” for the challenge. Here is my photo with Arabic and English “letters“.

A saloon for ladies only.

A saloon for ladies only.

When I see the word “saloon” I generally interpret it as a bar, a place that serves meals and alcoholic drinks in rural communities –  a place where people gather to relax over a meal and drinks after a long day at work.  The word has a slightly different meaning in Oman. No drinks are served in Omani “saloons” and men are not allowed. Instead “saloons” offer the ladies a bit of relaxation, pampering, and beauty services.
