Excuse me!
This is not your decision to make.

The moderators should be objective and not take sides in a political dispute.

If there would be Jews living in Yemen I'd be very interested,  but as far as I know the only Jews remaining live in a secure compound in Saana, not interesting to me.

Now that I completed my Hard to get to places,  (besides Syria) I'm in for some relaxing.

Top of my bucket list

1. MLE/and or BB
2. Hnl
3. BKK
4. African Safari. ( any advice?)

Hope to complete the top 3 by February.
My BIL has been there a couple of times recently. If you want information, PM me and i can put you in touch.

I know several people who travel regularly to Erbil and it is considered very safe

Don't have one at all.

And now you won't be able to get one at all until a couple of years go by without visiting these countries. I really enjoyed reading these TR's! Thanks for posting about something so off the beaten path!

Why do you suggest I can't get insurance?

Don't some credit card companies offer travel insurance?

Really intrigued by your trip reports, thanks for sharing! Just curious, not that I'm planning a trip to Iran or Iraq in the near future, but when you say "blend in" what are some of the things done to accomplish that as it would appear from an outsider's perspective that by default you would stick out like a sore thumb?

Now that's one incredible TR. I know I read them backwards, but they are all amazing. Any plans on visiting North Korea? They seem to be friendly towards America now. They just released the last American prisoner. 😊

I guess there's not much Jewish history there.
