#OurYemen: Sirah, 2009

The waterfront of Sirah District, also known as Crater, in Aden. This was taken from the causeway that leads to Sirah Island, a volcanic mountain that sits just off the coast of the city. Sirah, and now all of Aden's other districts, has taken an indescribable amount of damage over the last three weeks, but this is how I'll always remember it. On the left side of the frame is Fun City. Behind me is the fish market. I remember my first night in Aden, buying freshly-caught fish at the market and taking it across the street to an open-air restaurant, where the fish was quickly cooked over coals, and delivered to the table with a huge round of freshly-baked flatbread.
