Made my first cal to Yemen today. I had to confirm that someone would be there to pick me up at the airport. Those of you who might want to call me once I’m there may think about stocking up on international calling cards, preferably ones made specifically for the middle east or Yemen. I used a standard calling card that I had floating around. It had 120 minutes on it for domestic calls and 6 minutes for calls to Yemen. Yeah, it was 20 times more expensive to call Yemen than anywhere in the US… I’ve seen some cards made especially for this sort of thing and I’m sure that you can get better rates than that. In any case, I’m glad I made the call, being met at the airport is a much better idea than trying to go at it alone! Only two more days!!!! I can’t believe it!
