Having concluded that deadly carbomb attacks on foreign embassies aren't that big of a deal in Yemen, we trotted off to the office (that's the kind of consultant we are) then trotted off to the Souk Al-Milh, Sana'a's unspeakably awesome market. We like to think of ourselves as souk connoisseurs, and this is by far the best we've ever been in.
In fact, Yemen has become one of our number-one favorite destinations.
This souk, and the city in which it sits, deserves a much more detailed post, but, for those of you who find this part of the world frightening and impenetrable, we'd like to point out that we wandered around the souk, alone, all afternoon without any ill effect. The only concession we made to common sense was not replying "America" to the question "where are you from?" something we don't normally do (we like to embrace scorn).
Carbombs aside, Yemen is awesome.
