The map of Oman shows two scraps of territory separate from the main part of the country. There are lots of these geographical peculiarities around the world; I think they are what make maps interesting. The thing is, when one of these places gets in the news journalists almost always refer to them as enclaves. In fact an enclave is a territory wholly surrounded by the territory of another country. The Vatican City might be defined as an enclave. On the other hand if there is access without crossing another countries’ territory (often a sea coast) then it is an exclave, like those belonging to Oman.
