Yemen...what a place!! I was there a couple years ago. i was fortunate to be there in between periods of unrest. A few months before and after my arrival there were attacks on tourists outside of the capital.
It is a fascinating country to visit. The male-dominated public spaces, the veiled women, the prevalence of machine guns outside the capital, ceremonial daggers, the daily slowdown due to the men chewing the mild narcotic qat all afternoon. The men are dressed in sport jacket blazers.
The capital is a fairyland of gingerbread house style architecture. There are incredible landscapes in rugged mountains, sandy deserted beaches. It is unlike any other place I've been.
I consider myself blessed to have been able to spend time in this unique country with it's wonderfully friendly people. It's a great place for a photo-walk/vacation.
