Because I am tired of hearing about all these naive Americans who travel to foreign and dangerous countries, and then get “caught” by the authorities over there or even worse, caught by “tribesmen”, I felt it necessary to provide this helpful information for those planning to travel to these dangerous places in the future.
The U.S. Government has a website you can visit, to figure out what countries are safe, and what countries (if you had any sense), you would stay away from.
PLEASE, if you plan to travel to some exotic far away place…..CHECK THIS SITE FIRST:
Yemen: Country specific information: This link has everything you need to know about the country. It is valuable information about safety, recent news, entry/exit requirements, crime, medical insurance, plus much more.
This information is provided for each country you chose to research or read about.
The following is only a partial excerpt from the web site, under the Warnings section:
February 25, 2010
The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the high security threat level in Yemen due to terrorist activities. The Department recommends that American citizens defer non-essential travel to Yemen. American citizens remaining in Yemen despite this warning should monitor the U.S. Embassy website and should make contingency emergency plans. This replaces the Travel Warning for Yemen issued June 26, 2009.
Interpretation: DONT go there unless you HAVE TO.

This is my random information for you today…..hope it helps.
