My French friends are back from Thilla and we had a good chat last night (see photo).
All this travelling rough in dodgy countries finally caught up with me this morning, I was attempting to get to Manakah a couple of hours east of Sana a and being a cheapscate and not wanting to pay for a tour I was in a share taxi with 9 others. My taxi proceeded to have a head on with another car I am in a bit of shock and feeling a little sick and sore but I am ok. I wont be catching anymore taxi's except to the airport now.
Not sure what I am going to do with myself for the next few days, I am eager to get out of Yemen.
I feel much more positive today almost being killed freaked me out a bit. Friday is like Saturday at home and is also the best day for markets so I plunged back into the old town wandering indiscriminately until I found the souk, this time I took photo's of as many shops and people as I was allowed.
I hope you like the selection.

is time to head back to Dubai in transit to Qatar, I have had a memorable time here to say the least.
I plan to spend about three hours in the Irish Pub in the airport downing Guiness while in transit.
