Photographer's Note

During my journey through Yemen in 1998 I spent a day in Ibb, the country's fifth city (population today probably close to 200 000), situated roughly 200 km south of Sanaa.

Like in most Yemeni cities lots of houses in Ibb are built like towers, home to an extended family and their cattle and designed to be easily protected. There are not a lot of great sights in Ibb but I had a nice day. As happened most of the time in Yemen I met a number of amazingly helpful and friendly people.

This picture, scanned from a Kodachrome slide, shows a very ordinary street towards the outskirts of the city.
