Monday windows: As Sulaif Fort, Oman

    • Thanks, Ludwig, It’s quite a cute window wall and I’m so glad I found it, with Monday windows in mind… The faceless front was to repel invaders, the fort is full of small holes in the wall for shooting at the enemy and the entrance has a slit above the door where boiling oil could be dropped on the invaders.
