Alien Plants!

If I could have one wish it would be ‘peace on earth’ of course, but really for selfish reasons. It would end the unrest in Yemen and oust the oppressive regime, allowing me to visit the island of my dreams, Socotra. It’s the most alien-looking place on Earth, with many of it’s plants and creatures found nowhere else on the planet. Hello dragon’s blood trees and sparkling white sand dunes!socotra, national geographic socotra, national geographic socotra, national geographicsocotra, national geographic
