Camping in Yemen

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Valerie Szybala

This photo was taken during an amazing trip to Yemen that included Sana'a and the remote island of Socotra. Located in pirate-infested waters off the horn of Africa, part of a country that is often written off as violent and unstable, and with little modern infrastructure -- Socotra is not all that easy to access, but well worth the effort for those who do.

Location: Socotra, Yemen
