Sanaa Local Customs: 15 reviews and 33 photos
Almost any man In Sanaa and I guess also in the rest of Yemen carries around his jambia.
It's a sort of knife in a belt over men trousers.
I guess it's more a part of the typical dressing as many even go around just with the belt and no knife inside.
In the suq there is an entire area full of jambias shops when you can get one for less than 10 dollars, I bought one and had no problem at all to take it home as long as I put it in the lagguage I was sending and not in the hand one.
