Islamic Village Wedding in Yemen
I was delighted when my friend invited me to a double wedding party in a village in Yemen. This was only a few miles from the Red Sea in the Tihama. You will see the 2 grooms (wearing funny hats and chewing qat) and zero women or brides. The ladies had a separate party somewhere else. The plastic they were spreading on the ground was for the feast. The big tent and cushons were for people to just hang out. Look for the wedding singer with a cordless microphone. The guy shooting the big gun at the end was a body guard for a local sheik who showed up. Oh, and did you see the little kid with an AK-47 machine gun? Pray hard!
