Re: webcams

Hi Cathy, A pity you didn't ask the question a week ago. I have just got back from Aden, I could have asked ! A webcam on the top of Observation Hill would be a good place to start .

Hi Jonathan,

I've had a look at uTube as someone else mentioned.

Didn't realise Maalla was such a long street.I remember being taken there to "Wongs" for a heavy jacket. Does anyone else remember that shop?

Re: webcams

Hi Cathy,
I have seen some good video of Aden on UTube. I keep thinking of posting some of mine from the recent trips I've made if I can sort out how to upload the stuff. I don't remember 'Wongs" I presume the heavy jacket was for a trip back to the UK. I can recall sitting around a single bar electric fire at the house in Ghadir as the air conditioning was for ever set at 70F. I do not recognise any stores on Maalla straight from my times there as a child / teenager. The Chinese restaurant at the Crater Pass end of Maalla straight is still in operation that must be over 60 plus years of continued patronage!!

Re: Wongs

We remember Wongs shop very well and have various items still in the family. We were in touch with the Wongs who had a shop and lived in Dubai definitely until a couple of years ago. They have family in UK, Hong Kong and France.

Hi Marion,

I think on my very last trip, the whole family of us got kitted out at Wongs. I had my jacket for years, and thought I was very trendy, as they had coloured toggles on them !!!!For those who didn't visit, they were heavy winter jackets.

Glad that the family have diversified.
