In one of the previous posts I gave you a glimpse of Yemen. In the coming couple posts I want to take you to this amazing country. First let's start with some faces. As most of the women were behind the veil and not want their photos to be taken, almost all my faces from Yemen are either men or children.
When I decided to travel to Yemen. My family and friends were worried about my choice as it was quite an unknown destination. To tell you the truth first it was scary to see all the men carrying big daggers or some kind of rifle. But in the 10 days I spent there all I met were very peaceful people. I did not face any problem.Our Bedouin guide who helped us pass the desert. His navigation talents in a place where all you can see sand and dunes was very impressive..As it is the same everywhere in the world, children loves posing for the photos. You dont need any permission. However the gentleman on the picture above kindly let me take the photo of his entire family. It was a very nice gesture in a place where it is very difficult to photograph female figures.And finally a happy female figure from Yemen. Check out my beautiful necklace. There were very good Yemeni artisans who produced silver jewelry. The ones I bought there are still my favorites..
