The American Curiousities

I was surprised to find out that Mr Sowaid had not been here. I was more surprised to find that the village people could not recall any foreign visitors coming to this locale to see the coffee. They had visitors from Italy and France come to see the ruined church atop Mount Ismaili (Jabal Ismaili) but that is it. Considering this is the most fabled coffee in Yemen, that was a surprise. By this time we were certain there was no return to the car. We could never make the perilous hike in the dark, and yet our hosts did it, not once but twice, to go get our bags from the car! Two hours for each trip there and back!
