Episode Summary

EDIT
There's sun, sea and sand aplenty, but the pina coladas might be hard to come by in The Republic of Yemen. Sitting on the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, framed by the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea, Saudi Arabia and Oman, this Islamic country is land of spectacular mountains, expansive sand dunes and ancient mosques. It's home to one of the world's oldest civilizations and also, one of its youngest democracies. Yemen's support of President Bush and his anti-terrorism agenda has given way to a homegrown militant insurgency, who frequently express their disapproval with that friendship. In June 2007, a suicide bombing in the city of Ma'rib killed several people, including seven tourists. On his trip through Yemen, Dr. Danger visits capital city Sana'a and immerses himself in the food, culture and beauty of San'a's Old City. Fully outfitted in traditional Yemeni garb, the doctor sets off for a hike up one of the country's highest peaks, and experiences his share of thrills, chills, and spills along the way. Currency: Yemeni Rial (YER), US $1 equals 198.150 YERmoreless
