Photo Of The Day: Yemen Beach

Photo of the day - Yemen beach

Looking at the gorgeous beach landscape above, you might think you were looking at Hawaii or New Zealand. Today's Photo of the Day was actually taken in Yemen, a Middle Eastern country, which just celebrated its Unity Day after being consolidated in 1990, and the first Arab country to give women the right to vote. With borders on the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden and Arabian Sea, there's no shortage of beaches, but while the US State Department still has a warning against travel to Yemen, you might just have to enjoy them virtually.
