That was a pretty neat trick in northern Yemen, I gotta admit. I just finished
reading Holy War, Inc., by Peter L. Bergen, ex of CNN. He'd just about finished
writing this book, subtitled "The Secret World of Osama bin Laden" when 9-11
happend, so naturally he had to add an extra chapter. Bergen travelled into the
Hadramawt region (believed to be part of the Frankincense Trail where Lehi
travelled, incidentally), home of the bin Laden clan, and also into northern
Yemen, where the translator/driver's job was to stop at checkpoints, grab his
Kalashnikov, and yell at people who also had Kalashnikovs. Pretty interesting
territory.

Me, I get my frankincense at a head shop near the downtown Hyatt in Calgary every
year. It's almost as safe, and a lot closer. ;-)
