Long Passages stopped in Aden and this was truly one of the most memorable and enjoyable stops along our trip to the Middle East and Red Sea.


The history, culture, economy, and population of Yemen have all been influenced by the country's strategic location at the southern entrance of the Red Sea�a crossroads of both ancient and modern trade and communications routes. In the ancient world, the states that occupied the area known today as Yemen controlled the supply of such important commodities as frankincense and myrrh and dominated the trade in many other valuable items, such as the spices and medicines of Asia. 1
