Souq Hajjar, a qat marquet in Sana'a. The qat is a plant widely cultivated in Yemen, whose leaves contain a compound with effects similar to those of amphetamines. Among the people from the Arabian penisula and the horn of Africa, qat chewing has a long history as a social custom dating back thousands of years. Studies have shown that only in Yemen, almost 80% of its population spend 3 to 4 hours a day chewing the plant. Moreover, the enormous need for water of the qat industry is on course to make the capital, Sana’a, the first in the world to completely run out of water.

Rooftop view in Old Sana'a. Sana'a has been inhabited for more than 2,500 years, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. In the 7th and 8th centuries the city became a major centre for the propagation of Islam. This religious and political heritage can be seen in the 103 mosques, 14 hammams and over 6,000 houses, all built before the 11th century. At an altitude of 2,300 metres (7,500 ft), it is also one of the highest capital cities in the world.
