The remarkable land formations, all natural not man made, taken from the plane coming into Sana'a.
As-Sailah, the paved wadi which is a major road through Sana'a.
The view from our hotel room overlooking Old Sana'a, Yemen.
One of the old mud brick houses unique to Yemen.
Every Yemeni male wears a traditional jambia (dagger) as regular day wear, and they start young.
Tiny door on one of the buildings near the hotel.
All the streets of the old town are very narrow.
Sana'a tower house.

In the top floor lounge 'mifraj' of our hotel.
Alley way near the hotel
Sana'a tower house
Colin's gorgeous photo of the mosque around the corner from the hotel.
Life in the alley
Even I would have bumped my head on this one....
I like this one because of the Smurf in Arabic and the timeless old house in the background.
As Sailah with tower house
Sana'a's alleyways were built wide enough for two loaded camels to pass each other. Cars have a problem, seeing 3 or 4 cars reversing out of alley because it was blocked wasn't unusual.
My favourite tower house photo
Its traditional at Eid Al Adha that all the kids get new clothes, these cuties were very happy to be photographed in their new gear.
Colin wearing his jambia (dagger). He was a real hit with the local guys.
How tall do you have to be to post a letter in Sana'a?
Two little girls who loved their new wings they'd received as Eid presents.
Colin on the way to the souq. As you can see rubbish is a real problem in Sana'a.
Buying up the shop!
