Mohammed adding some spices to the tomato & yoghurt.


I normally have to ask/hassle to take people's photo's, so was great to be asked first.


After lunch we headed out to the old Jewish village of Bayt Baws.


The village was largely abandoned in 1948 when the State of Israel was formed.


Although still a popular spot for the (few) tourists who visit, no effort is sadly being made to preserve it.


Hence with the exception of a few homes being lived in by poor residents, the village is now slowly disintergrating.


Looking out over the now encroaching city of Sana'a.


The two hills in the distance are named after the arabic word for a ladies bossoms.


We then walked down to the city below.
