Photographer's Note

This nice man is called Ali and he cut my hair while I was in Zabid. Notice the photos of political figures (mostly the Yemeni president in different situations) including a photo of Sadam Hussein behind him.

For some reason, Sadam is very much admired in Yemen. There are pictures, calendars and posters of him everywhere. Yemen did not condemn the invasion of Kuwait which resulted in thousands of yemeni workers being expelled from Kuwait and other rich emirates.

When I was in Florida for work a few weeks ago, I went to get my hair cut in Sarasota. The girl who cut my hair asked me where I got my last haircut, so I told her......

She said that was the second time she had ever heard of Yemen, the first time was in TV sitcom "friends" where Chandler is trying to get away from annoying girlfriend Janice, and ends up telling her he cant see her cause he is going to Yemen.
