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.
