Breakfast on day 3 at the Dawood Hotel...

...and the cool view. The hotel was right beside a communal garden in the old city.

After picking up our Police permits, we headed out into the country side. An old village built on a rocky outcrop.

Some teenagers off to school.

Looking down into the valley. The terrain was quite dry and rocky, but still with some agriculture.

Stopping to buy some Khat. Thankfully Khat sellers were keen for a group shot, and even invited us for lunch. Unfortunately with the busy day ahead however, we had to regretfully decline.

Two local boys keen for a 'Soura'.

The old town of Thula, and one of five towns in Yemen on the tentative UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List.

The town water supply for washing, feeding animals etc. You can see a lady near the steps carrying a bucket on her head.

We then set off for a hike across the countryside.
