Hi Alfred i must answer you about your question i had some 50 photos and Sat i deleted all now i start again my perents were born in Yemen and some of the people here chew it i do not my father grows and share it he does not chew it it doesnt good for the mount and the teeth bye Shimon
Encore: Is there a reason why this shot is posted as being in the YEMEN?
I worked in KSA, and the Yemen was virtually off limits.
How did you get a visa? ""Qat,... "" and ""Yemen >> West >> Sana >> Sanaa"" suggest you were there... I mean we assume you took the photo.
Looking forward to clarification.
