This Way to Socotra Island

I am really curious about this small island off Yemen called Socotra. I have read a lot of interesting things and the unique and endemic fauna and flora inhabiting the island. It is like waking up in a different planet or time zone. See for yourself:

Info: Socotra is a small archipelago in the Indian Ocean which is part of the Republic of Yemen.
