I just found a nice site which should whet the appetite of the armchair traveller! Have a look at http://www.earthtv.com . Some lovely views of life around Udaipour, India; Sydney, St Andrews, Canada; Venice, Vienna, and a new cam installed showing the huge Sultan Qaboos Mosque in Muscat, capital of Oman.
Oman is well worth a visit - Omanis are very friendly and engaging people, the landscape is rugged and suitable for camelback or 4x4 trips, and the bird-watching is spectacular, as Oman is the last port of call for all kinds of birds from colder climes migrating to overwinter. From waders to raptors, to finches, gulls, hoopoes - it has something for every ornithologist.
