No salmon fishing in Yemen!.......

But the architecture and the souk of Sana'a are among the most fascinating I have encountered. Sana'a has to be one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world.

Parts of Yemen quite literally take your breath away! I was pleased to not have to test my stamina at over 2,500 meters a.s.l. on my visit to Thulla - I was already breathless when we arrived at the gate house only to find that the gatekeeper had gone to Sana'a for the day.

See examples of the excellent, but challenging work being done by my hosts in Yemen on the Socotra and Care Yemen web sites.
