  such a cute face
by JohnniOmani

Yemen has to be one of the biggest highlights thus far in my travelling days. I learned Arabic for nearly 3 years (still got a long way to go) but I really wanted to go to Yemen to put it in use and what a delight it was because the people were absolutely open and fantastic. They invite you in their shops and chat away and you would be surprised to learn what they know about the world considering where they live. Arabic or basic Arabic is essential but I recommend learning a wee bit so you can enjoy the Yemenis first hand!
