The 700 year old tree at the base of the palace.

Roast corn vendor.

We then drove up to look at the valley below. The Rock Palace, is just in the upper left. Apparently fruits & vegetables used to be grown in the valley, but has been largely turned over to the cultivation of khat as it is more profitable.

We then headed back to Sana'a and checked into my hotel in the old city, and was also built in traditional Yemeni style.

The room was nice and clean and pretty good for $30 a night.

We then went out for a walk to get some lunch. Some locals about to have an afternoon munch.

A cup of tea and a bag of khat.


At the restaurant we went to for lunch, which was famous for its roast chicken.

Lunch for three
