Sights to be Seen in Yemen's Old City

Yemen is making headlines right now, as government forces and people alleged to be tribesman slug it out in the capital Sanaa.  Friday morning, a Muslim preacher and several bodyguards were killed when the mosque at the presidential palace was shelled during weekly prayers.  Now fears are growing of an all-out civil war in the country.

CNN crews have been in and out of Yemen for months, reporting on the developments there.  Last year, photographer Todd Baxter spent some time in Yemen.  He went on a shoot in Sanaa's Old City with a local guide and put together a beautiful BackStory with the sights and sounds of the town.

    I write sci-fi & my plot is about good vs evil every time. I choose one cthcaraer to be good & one to be bad and I add magic to it .probably not has helpfull as your readers would like but its the best I can come up with. Writing a plot is just something someone can do, theres no tried & tested method.
