Days in Hadramout , The Trip to our Ancestral Homeland of Hardami's
Saudi Youth that have Hardami origins traveled for the first time to visit their ancestral homeland in late 2013 , Hadramout which is located in the south of yemen is the wall street of arabs , the Birthplace for Famous Saudi and Arab Business men over the centuries. These Teen alongside me were terrified of the Negative impact that the news created with conflict in Yemen. and yet they were brave enough to try and it was surprisingly very safe.
Visiting Major cities in Hadramout , ancient mosques , the famous bee hives , museums and tourism attraction .
even some of them including me meet with our distant relatives which in my case had been out of contact for over 100 Years .
My Greatest thanks goes to Eng. Abdullah Bugshan and the organizers Rehlat A'ilati ( which translates into Family Trip Tours ) .
it has been an enlightening experience and my notes will be published in a book in Arabic next year.
