Maya and I were on our way back to Doha after a week spent in rural Ethiopia.  We don't look so bad, considering..  :-)

Sana'a has claims on being the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world.  Life here in the old city is much the same as it has been for hundreds of years.  Here a jambiya blade is fashioned by a blacksmith.
