Yemen, the land of dreams “arabia felix”

  • I was one of the last tourists to photograph the Yemen before the outbreak of the Civil War with the fall of longtime President Saleh.
    the Yemen is a unique country; different from all others, it seems like you’ll go back in time. It has maintained its tribal culture and there’s only little of influence of tourism.
    Today, Yemen is often put on the “black travel list” for tourists, even though it’s a fantastic country and the people are very hospitable.
    I visited all the regions: the capital Sana’a with all its beautiful palaces decorated and carved windows; the cities of ibb, jiblah and Taizz with ancient mosques.
    the tribal villages of thula, hababa, We walked through the countryside in the surroundings of manakha and al hajjarah the Northern mountains;
    the economy of the villages is based on the sale and consumption of qat (natural drug with the principle of LSD) comes from a leaf of a plant.
    the seaside villages the region of thiama with The historic town of Zabid is renowned for its 86 mosques, with madrasas attached, and domestic architecture.
    and finally I visited the tribal region where you’ll come across Hadhramaut , the city ‘old shebam Manhattan of the desert, seyiun and wadi dawan it’s the ancestral home of the extended Bin Laden family…..
