      Why does that look like a mini-model on someone's basement wargames setup?

    The Yemeni legend of that island is that is where Cain slew Abel and from Abel's blood grew those dragon trees.

    But also I don't think it's a good time to go 1) because of Somali pirates and 2) because of the current situation

      I was looking into it 6 months ago and it seemed really damn cool but all the videos I saw online of it were from rich white influencer girls which is usually a bad sign. Pretty sure you can only go on guided tours there since it's pretty much a deserted island.

      They are really cool trees that are found exclusively on that island

    Every recent news I've read about them is that they have been able to avoid all the civil war stuff and are relatively autonomous. If you can get a direct international flight it should be a doable trip keeping some common thirdie common sense. Go for it anondo

      Socotra has basically been taken over by the UAE under the guise of military intervention against Al-Queda & Houthi rebels. The Emiratis had to backdown from outright annexation but they’ve given over the island’s government to a secessionist group who want to break-off from Yemen.

      It’s rather preferable as “imperialism” goes given the absolute state of the mainland

    It's worth it. AMA. Before the UAE/US had completely infiltrated. Pre-Arabic language. Thirty years ago, didn't have currency or an airstrip. 800 flora and fauna that can't be found anywhere else on earth. Go through UAE or Somalia now, I suppose.

      No one goes to Yemen once. You never go or you figure out how you'll go back. Might as well go to Mars.
