Excursion of the University of Augsburg in 2011

From March 7 to 17, 2011 the Department of Human Geography and Geoscience conducted an excursion with 24 students to the Sultanate of Oman and Dubai.

Prior to the trip, the department head wrote to the German-Omani Association with a request to examine the program they had developed for Oman to determine its feasibility, and asked that we provide additional contacts in the country.

We were glad to help with this petition and arranged for the group to visit the privately-run "living museum" Bayt as Safah in Al Hamra, where the students were given an insight into life in mud houses and the traditional preparation of basic foodstuffs.
