Photographer's Note

Because of popular demand I post a picture today of a Yemeni crowd that actually includes a woman. Look carefully to the left.
Generally Yemeni people are extremely friendly and helpful, but pointing a camera towards a woman is not at all appreciated and can cause serious problems. I had some short chats with high-school girls (veiled, of course) who wanted to practise some English, but if I asked to take their picture the reply was NO, and off they went hurriedly, looking around to make sure that no-one had noticed anything.
