Sailor's letter: Socotra, Paradise island

"Touching land countless faces smiling and all curious, who were these people. I announced: "I am happy to finally be back in Africa", to which they replied, "No no, this is the Middle East!" Awesome. Socotra tamam! Socotra good! An expression one quickly learns through osmosis as it is a common expression people often times ask you on the island of Socotra. Though this is a common Arabic expression, the local language Socotri is, as the name suggests, a local language whose roots is one step older than Arabic."
