Restaurants: Would you like Typhoid with that?

After stepping off the 18 hour flight that it takes to get to Yemen, one would expect a delicious cooked meal with mean well done, and the food prepared according to proper health standards, but not here in Sana`a, the capital of Yemen. It is evident upon stepping out of the Sana`a airport into a restaurant filled with customers, dirty tables and semi cooked food to order, that the expected health standards are ...

Is it the Taxi or the Bus

A travel blog entry by longbeard

Well, I chose the bus because it was, and still is, filled with greater eventful incidents. You choose your ride, but either way it's going to be a bumpy ride accompanied by near missed accidents, congested traffic, road-raged drivers, and street hustlers.

I caught the sun rising over the distant mountains, the morning clear as could be. I was the only person out at this early hour, and the sandstone ...

... only dispensed US dollars. That was pretty strange since dollars are not an official currency here. I decided to stay at the Taj Talha even though Lonely Planet and Bradt both spoke so highly of Arabia Felix Hotel. It cost $20 for a tiny room with shared bath, but I seemed to be the only person on the floor anyways. The room itself provided a nice taste of what it would be like to live in a traditional Yemeni tower house, steep steps, thick walls, ...
