View Full Version : Aden, in Yemen

04-03-2009, 09:20 AM
Has anyone been to Aden in the past few years? I'm trying to get a handle on certain things (and the internet is being of little help): I noticed there are two peninsulas, Aden and Little Aden . . . which one would be more likely to have tight alleys, smoky coffeeshops, and more natives than visitors? Is there a visible Christian presence in the city (such as churches)? How draconian are police there? Does anything, any anecdote or memory, jump immediately to mind about the place (especially looking for "poet's-eye views", local color, atmosphere, etc)?

Thanks bunches in advance!
