YEMEN

Yemen is located in the southwestern corner of the Arabian Peninsula. According to legend, it was founded by Noah’s son Shem,. Its capital Sana is a city of great antiquity. The world’s oldest mud-brick skyscrapers are in Shibam, called the “Manhattan of the Desert.” The country receives more rain thanks to its mountainous geography and hence is more fertile than the rest of the peninsula. Yemen was called “Felix,” meaning happy,” during Roman times. Yemen is the second-largest independent Arab country in the world. It is home to the biggest sand desert “Rub’al Khali” and a rare plant called “Socotra Dragon Tree.” “Mocha coffee” takes its name from Yemen’s important port Mocha.
