What passes for a meat market on Socotra island is a little different than what you or I would expect to find in the United States. It is a simple stall on the street, often with a live goat or two, in waiting, tied to the stand. Hey, at least you know the meat is fresh! It is all part of the fun of adventure travel in exotic destinations, and there is no doubt that Socotra is an exotic destination! it is in the Indian ocean of the coast of Yemen. There is not much tourist infrastructure with no huge fancy hotels and no expensive restaurants. What it does offer is amazing, empty beaches, incredible vistas of mountains and canyons, exotic trees like Bottle Trees and Dragon Blood trees, and almost no tourists...how can you beat that?
