[May 18] Let’s meet the world: Yemen

<Map of Yemen, Sanaa is its capital.>

The Republic of Yemen is a country located in Western Asia. It is surrounded by Saudi Arabia and Oman and it meets Gulf of Aden and Red Sea. Its territory includes over 200 islands. Yemen’s climate is mostly desert. It is hot and humid along west coast, and extraordinarily hot, dry, harsh desert in east. Red Sea lies between Africa and Asia and is one of the most saline bodies of water in the world due to high evaporation and very little precipitation.

To host their National Pavilion Day at the Yeosu Expo, Dr. Saad Aldeen Ali Bin Taleb who is the minister of Commerce, Industry, and Energy came over. They directed “Happy Yemen” for celebrating stage and showed their traditional dancing and song – Sna’ani, Lahji, hadharmy, etc.
