Hadiboh is the capital of Socotra

Hadiboh is the dirtiest place of Socotra. It is hardly understandable why people settled down here. There are often rainy and sunless days. A rivulet flowing through the city is a perfect setting for the nurturing of mosquitoes that bother people at night. The city is overwhelmed by rubbish eaten up by ubiquitous goats, who also often steal food from tables in restaurants.
