The other Yanbu

There are actually three cities comprising Yanbu. The other one we visited is Yanbu Al-Nakhal, a group of villages about an hour's drive from the coast that used to be one of the hubs on the spice and incense route between Egypt and Yemen.

There were camels and a staged sword fight on the streets of one of the villages, which wasn't that interesting, but I loved the landscape: date palms, mud-brick ruins, mountains.
