The village houses were all in the traditional Yemeni style, and was quite a sight to walk around in, especially after jumping off the plane from Dubai.

Mens typical clothing was a thobe, or 'Zenneh', along with a suit jacket on top.

Smile and a frown.


Next to the village was the Dar Al Hajar, or Rock Palace, where the old ruler of Yemen, Imam Yahya, used to reside.

On Friday's in the palace compound the local men gather for traditional dancing.

Near the top of the Rock Palace looking west. Note the dancing on the lower left.

And looking east. The tree's on the far right are Khat, the local narcotic of choice.

One of the colourful windows inside the palace.

The balcony on top where the Imam used to relax.
