this gallery is in preparation ... yemen has a very long history - yet mostly it was ruled by external kingdoms, then islamic sovereigns, finally by the ottoman empire, before becoming independent in 1918. the capital, sanaa, has been inhabited for 2500 years. it is a world heritage city, full of amazing architecture, which is undoubtedly unique ... here is a preview, presenting some of the many features of this country, such as historic buildings, markets, specialty shops; it also shows some people, including the two escorts of my trip to marib, and an old man reading the koran.
