#OurYemen: Bukar, 2009

This post comes to us courtesy of our friend Alex, who studied in Yemen for a few months in 2009. "We were on a trip to Buker, a little west of Thula, and the kids who lived there were asking us to sing them a song. I couldn't think of anything...so I asked if they knew any songs. They did. And it was amazing."

Alex understands the importance of our mission: "Frustratingly," he says, "I spend a lot of my day trying to tell people how great Yemen is, and dispel the 'everyone is high on qat' misconceptions....So I really appreciate the #OurYemen effort."
