In November, a northeastern monsoon is installed on Socotra, which brings clouds and sometimes rains to the island. The winter season in Socotra is the best time for trekking and landscape photography.
Socotra was hit again by the storm. A lot of destroyed houses all over the island. There are several dead. Half of our restaurant was destroyed. The ship carrying humanitarian aid ran aground during a storm.
As far back as in Alexander of Maсedon’s times Socotra supplied a great deal of not only frankincense and myrrh, but also Dragon’s blood, which was rubbed in by gladiators before combats for quick wound healing.
