While working in Ethiopia, we spent our 1995 Christmas break bicycling around Yemen. It was a very undeveloped country and even the main hiways were dirt roads. Yemeni culture is very unique with their custom of always carrying their jambia and the dances where they dance with an assortment of weapons. The people were some of the least friendly people we’ve met. In cities most were friendly, but out in the boonies it was clear they didn’t want us around. The country had a lot of culture and scenery to offer, but the animosity exhibited by some of the people made this a place I wouldn’t go again.
