Hi Freddie,

Encore: Is there a reason why this shot is posted as being in the YEMEN?

Seems odd!

I worked in KSA, and the Yemen was virtually off limits.
How did you get a visa? ""Qat,... "" and ""Yemen >> West >> Sana >> Sanaa"" suggest you were there... I mean we assume you took the photo.

Looking forward to clarification.
