I love old Sana’a. Every town has its mythology. Sana’a traces it to Shem, son of Noah. Sana’a is more than old buildings, it is a culture, a way of life, and a distinct piece of the jigsaw that makes up Yemen. In the good days this was a total community. Every neighborhood had a garden/allotment, a mosque, and a turkish sauna. Today the water shortage threatens the whole area.
