Where I spent my summer vacation..

Mukalla, the capital of Hadhramut, in eastern Yemen, is not quite the place where you can stroll around in a swimsuit, but is a most interesting town nonetheless. Historically, it linked Arabia with east Africa, India and Indonesia (where a diaspora of more than 4 million Hadramis thrives), and was the main port for the exportation of myrrh, frankincense, and arabic gum, and the importation of precious wood, spices and slaves. Today, it’s a diving spot, and a good place to eat lobster (although not quite like Maine 😉

  1. Hi Edouard,
    You must have had a splendid summer vacation. I hope you did. Marvelous.
    I know I am being difficult and probably a pest but I wonder if Wisteria had her foal? I think about her every day and would love to follow her through the days. I know you are very busy. Do you think Jeanne would mind if I asked about Wisteria from time to time? I truly do love her and if you ever have to part with her I would take her into my life gladly. She is already a part of my heart.
    I just want to tell you that I am in awe of your work. You have done so much for our priceless, beloved horses. No one I know has any idea of the fragility of the existence of the ancient Arabian horse. And most simply don’t care. I don’t have horses now but I am dedicated to spreading the word that our Arabs, the true jewels of the desert are in danger of disappearing forever. Thank you for all you have done.

  2. Hi Jane, thank you for your kind words. Please feel free to contact Jeanne Craver about her. She hasn’t foaled yet. She was bred to Thadrian multiple times, including in October last year, which is when she must have conceived. I will let you and others know about her whereabouts regularly. Take care, E
