2013 Trip to Yemen, again

Well, I had to travel again, and again for family matters.  I did take a few pictures, which I will share here.  This time all the pictures were taken using my bridge Panasonic camera, vs last years trip which was taken with my DSLR camera.  Also I used all jpg vs raw from my last trip.  I did minimum editing using PicMonkey, which is reachable in SmugMug directly.  I just used the auto-fix, and some cropping here and there.  If you want to compare , you can see the last years gallery here.  And here some posts from the first trip.

“Dar Al-Hajar” The Rock House, was the house of the king before the revolution of 1962. The beauty of this house was that it looked over the Grape gardens, which unfortunately today is replaced by “quat”

The little palace was built directly on the rocks, which makes it special.

“Jabal Al-Nahdayn” The mountain of the two bosom’s

An old Jeep, I don’t think a modern Jeep would last this long, specially that it’s out in the open weather.

Arriving to Hungary

Arriving from the comfortable 24-27 Degrees Celsius, to the -8 Degrees celsius in Hungary.  The weather is pretty strange this year, going from Spring to Winter like with in 1 week.

around 10-14 cm of snow on our arrival day to Hungary

Frozen wall, where the wind was blowing all night.

Frozen water drops on the side of the house.
