Veteran broadcaster Paul Holmes brings his trademark stream of introspection and acerbic wit to the ancient cultures of Yemen, drawing much mileage from the country’s many curiosities; soldiers on patrol holding hands; the high volume manner of daily conversation and the ubiquitous Khat: a chewing plant known for its amphetamine-like effects. Ending his trip with a drive across the foreboding Empty Quarter (“Al-Qaeda country”), Holmes is nonetheless treated “warmly, hospitably, and generously” by all he meets, much to his surprise.
