I came in Sanaa after a few days in Dubai and the first feeling was like a big jump in the past.
You get that feeling already during the landing of the aircraft when you start seing the desert mountain view and the sensation of dust all around.
Then as soon as you get out of the airport(for me it was already an adventure as they needed a hour to scan my passport) you start feeling a bit heavier as it is 2400 meters high and for someone living permanently on the sea level like me, it was already a surprise.

To be honest at the beginning I was not feeling so friendly with the town as it's really full of people with weapons, almost any man carries around his jambia and it's not difficult to see men with guns.
This made me feel weird at the beginning as I do not feel confortable with many weapons around whoever carries them, included militaries or police, but I must admitt after a while I just recognised people here were just extremely friendly, those carrying weapons and those not.
And at last, after a night with stomach troubles, I finally found a place where weapons were not allowed: the hospital!
