September 20, 2008: Socotra

Socotra Island, is where Dr Seuss spent his vacations, I think.

It's loaded with strange flora & fauna, a third of which are found nowhere else. A birder's paradise with 140 different species of birds; 10 of which are unique to the island. The Socotra warbler, sunbird, starling, bunting, sparrow, Socotra Cormorants and cisticola are among the birds found here.





I just know there's something evil living in those mountains.


btw, there's also 40,000 people living in this UNESCO, World Natural Heritage Site.

Nucular aircraft carriers in the Middle East - 'at's what's causin' it.

And if you think that's scary, you should see their dolphins :p



Elspode  Saturday Sep 20 11:08 AM

Yeah...they're sharks.

Other than the nice pic with the mountains in the background it looks like pretty unforgiving territory. And that one tree doesn't look like a cucumber at all.

Any Anne McCaffrey fans out there? The Dragon's Blood Tree is the closest tree I've seen to Pern's "Sky Broom" trees. I'm thinking of the cover of "The Renegades of Pern". But they were a lot taller--sort of like our Sequoias.

The cucumber tree

Looks like a Boojum!

Man, that's some wrecked shit there. I LOVE it!

Now I want a desert rose tree (bush? hedge?) in my yard.



skysidhe  Saturday Sep 20 07:33 PM

I know I've seen those names on bottles of perfume.

Dragons blood is a really nice scent btw.



Tree Fae  Saturday Sep 20 08:34 PM

The first one looks almost like a overgrown mushroom, they are all very neat. I would love to see them.



spudcon  Saturday Sep 20 08:53 PM

I'll bet we could get some great 2x4s from that cucumber tree. And the base of the desert rose would probably keep a fireplace burning all night.



narcuul  Saturday Sep 20 09:43 PM

Oh.. There's yet one more to add to my list of places to see before I'm too senile to appreciate it..

So much to see. So.. not still making even a decent living.

I love those mushroom-shaped trees. They look just like the scenery in my last LSD trip. If I'd only known of this place before, I could've saved thousands on drug purchases .....



biorogue  Tuesday Sep 23 03:57 PM

those trees are cool

Is that island technically downwind of Bikini Atoll? That could expain a lot.

I know you're stirring, but ... C'm'ere!!!!





spudcon  Wednesday Sep 24 06:32 AM

Sorry, but couldn't find a recipe for those trees.



Treasenuak  Wednesday Sep 24 02:39 PM

Well, the cucumber tree works well in a light vinagrette...



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Sep 24 11:50 PM

Actually, those trees are biologically related to cukes.

So is bacon.


xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Sep 25 09:33 AM

You're thinking of eggs.



Treasenuak  Thursday Sep 25 12:26 PM

okay, after the massive drinking party last night, and the hangover I've got this morning, y'all are making me nauseated... :P
