Place of the Day: Socotra Islands

Not all places in the Middle East/Africa are experiencing unrest, and that leaves a wide variety of choices for places to visit should you have the time and money. 

One such place boasts a wide biodiversity of things to see:

A tiny archipelago located in the Indian Ocean, the Socotra Islands claim an environment of over 800 plants and animals and has been called the "Galapagos of the Indian Ocean". While its people are claimed to have descended from the Queen of Sheba, it has also claimed to have been the possible site of the original Garden of Eden, due to its proximity to other notable places in the area.  You won't find many roads or other amenities when visiting, but you will find a diverse atmosphere and a possible fun camping adventure.
