Join us for another exciting evening of Travel Tales on Tuesday, October 19 at 6 p.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch Library! Come travel behind the Arabian veil and explore the fascinating countries of Yemen and Jordan. Travel photographer Shirley Brown will captivate your travel bug!
For More Information on These Countries:

The library also has a great database called CultureGrams that offers information about each country's flag, population, customs, history, holidays and government! For example, I learned that the capital of Yemen, Sana'a, is one of the oldest cities in the world!
