In Every Valley, Make Yourself a Home

Yemen is home to hundreds of valleys teeming with diversity – not just in their landscapes, but in the people who dwell in them. Diversity thrives in the ways we remember our past and how we live in the present. The invitation to make a home in every valley, in this ancient Yemeni proverb, encourages us to find something familiar in every new place we visit. In this spirit of discovery, the Arabia Felix Magazine journalists take us on journeys through time and terrain. By forging an understanding with our neighbours, we can see a part of ourselves reflected in strangers. The possibility of making a home anywhere offers a chance to feel we truly belong wherever we land.
