Yemen: Al Mukalla

A new blogger from Yemen, in fact one of the very few. Omar Barsawad started Moments in Words from Hadhramout blog (more about Hadhramout here).
If you haven't seen/heard anything about this place before, this is your chance to see a photo of Ghuwaizi Fort (Built in 1884 AD at the entrance of Mukalla as a guard post) and know little more about it.
Omar also runs Basawad blog were he writes his ‘Thoughts in Solitude‘.
