From the roof

On Socotra it is not easy to find a good home fit for habitation.

This year it took us almost a month to look for such a dwelling. It was Ghanem who helped us to find a big house that was built not long ago and needed some finishing works to be done.

By Socotran standards, this is a big and comfortable house.  It has 3 rooms, a large lounge, a separate building for a big kitchen and a bathroom.

A high fence, a small yard and no neighbors compensated for some minor inconveniences to which we got accustomed very quickly (for example, the kitchen is equipped with a water tap, but there is no a sink; the water tap is meant only for using as a source of water!).

    In the central part of the East China Sea there is also Socotra Island. It is interesting to note that both Socotra islands are indirectly related to each other.
