Photographer's Note

I have been mainly absent from TE for a couple of weeks, partly because of a heavy work-load. Now I go back to where I left a fortnight ago, Yemen in 1998.

This is not a great shot but it gives you a fairly good idea of the famous "gingerbread houses" of old Sanaa. This central part of the capital offers plenty of views of the most unusual and spectacular architecture I have ever seen in any major city. It has a well deserved place among the UNESCO world heritage sites.

I have scanned this from a Kodachrome slide. Two more views of old Sanaa, from a different POV, will be added as workshops.

Here is a larger version.
