Eating in the local markets was one of my favourite local experiences.

The food was at once familiar, and not: so much of the food where I come from has some kind Yemeni connection (using similar spices and techniques, owing perhaps to the Yemeni trader ancestors of present day Arab Malays). The setting, delectable.

Wheelbarrows of bread. Loud evening banter in local Sana'a dialect of Arabic. Copious amounts of tea. The evening azan.
