  Tawhila quarter, Aden - seen from "Little Ben"
by MichaelFalk1969

I must admit Aden was only a stopover for half a day and we only got a superficial impression at best. What we saw was not spectacular, though. The setting against the backdrop of volcanic mountains looks great (as a friend of mine put it: "Aden is like Cape Town without the sights & without the crime"), but the socialist architecture doesn`t, few real "sights", rather boring all in all. In the Tawhila quarter "Littler Ben" (a clock tower from colonial times) makes a good viewing point.
