Photographer's Note

I know it's not a great photo, but it's the first one on this site from Aden, the second city of Yemen, and main port, formerly the capital of South Yemen. Perceived to be Yemen's most liberal city (that;s not saying much), even alcohol can be bought for private consumption, from an unmarked building along the waterfront, to the left of the Pizza Hut(the red roofed thing). This is taken from the fortress at the top of Sira Island, now linked by causeway to the mainland. Aden is one of the HOTTEST cities on earth, do NOT try to walk up here in summer. I think only Djibouti has a higher annual temperature. I also attempted an unsuccesful stitch which I will post to workshop.
