    Great writing Mira,
    just wonder how the tourist police (how absurd is that in itself!) let you go on a trip in July this year, I tried so many times and they won’t let me go anywhere officially since this ‘revolution’ started.
    But it was like you describe since I can remember, even before they introduced the ‘tourist police’.

    Thanks, Abu Moraza. None of the stories are during the uprising. They’re about my time in Yemen before the protests and over the years.

    Be it, Yemen or any other middle eastern or even Asian countries, you will always find the predominance of chauvinist culture and isolation of women in public life. Nowadays, even in Lebanon, you would find areas becoming a copy paste of such Yemeni places you encountered.
    It seems women in the middle east have to live in confinement except for few urban cities.
