For centuries, life in Yemen has not changed appreciably, with customs and practices as they were long ago. As Gateway to Yemen demonstrates, women are still dressed as their ancestors were, their faces hidden by veils. In parts of the country where rainfall is scarce, water is still a constant concern, because agriculture would be impossible without irrigation. With the advent of oil drilling, the modern world has come to Yemen, and material goods such as cars, once seldom encountered here, can be seen. As part of its modernization, Yemen has thrown open its city gates, called Bab al Yemen.
