    This was posted by one of my friends in another forum and i like to share it with you guys




    One day, I was in the elevator. A woman approached me "Where are
    you from?" she asked, I replied with some surprise "Yemen, how about you?" "Oh, Yemen...I see, I am from Ecuador". So, I asked her "Why are you asking?" she said "Just wanted to ask" ....interesting
    I wished her a good day and left to my floor.

    I like to observe people´s reactions when I mention that I am from Yemen. Some came with the responses "mmm....I am not sure where is it, Africa?", some said "Oh yeah, the US cole was bombed there, right?", others said "is it true there are no cars there?", and some said "Yep, Bin Laden originates from there". Although those comments could be bitter for some, there are some optimistic responses. Like somebody told me "Yessss, Yemen!! Queen of Sheba!" and another one said "The Happy Arabia" (or as we say al-Yaman al-sa3eed)

    I hope we find ways to englighten people about Yemen. associations/clubs/programs are really helpful and they can only and only continue with the members´ interest and input. A Yemeni insight, a Yemeni passion, and a Yemeni soul are needed.

    So, for Yemen, get involved.

    1. Is it in Africa
    That means the one who said I'm from Yemen is black

    2. Do you havew cars
    The one who said it looks miserable

    3. USS Cole
    The one who said it has a long moustache and little beard

    4. Queen of Sheba
    Sure you didn't meet with an American
    They know nothing about history

    The most frequent question I hear whenever I say "I'm from Yemen" is
    Where is that

    Dear Di7bash

    this is an obvious symptom of their weak knowledge of cultures and outer world

    and this character related to Americans and Canadians in general

    they are just look for three main goals:
    1- how to get a job
    2-how to have a girlfriend and the same with other ***
    3-how to have a car

    so their broders of thinking is limited,ofcours except the high educated people such as doctors and politicians

    regards
