Women Scatter

Basically, the women tend to disappear when the Yenkee heathens arrive. I tended to be respectful of the fact they didn't want t be photographed ... 99% of the time at least! In terms of headscarves, all women have them, and according to Ali, the degree to which they had themsleves is a personal, or family matter. Few have their faces exposed, many have just their eyes exposed, and an equal amount have a fine black veil that covers everything. In fact, in Sana'a I saw a woman who wore glasses outside here complete veil, a very unusual look, like a black blob with glasses.
