Would love to visit Socotra. Unfortunately, the country is basically off limits to Americans.

I traveled there with an American in '05. No sweat - as hospitable as any place I've ever been. Unless you're referring to the war, but that's made it off limits to everyone.

You can go to the Canary Islands where drago trees are also endemic. The biggest and oldest drago tree in the world is in the town of Icod de los Vinos in the island of Tenerife.

Yet another country Jews had to flee from or risk being extirpated from. Oh well, at least now they get an area the size of New Jersey to be safe in.

It's horrible, but being forced out of Yemen is in some ways more of a reward than a punishment.

Oman's doing just fine. Yemen is one of the most beautiful countries on earth, so even though it's definitely not doing fine, it's a pretty good place to get excited about.

Even closer than 20 km because Perim island (belonging to Yemen) is in between the maritime border.

Back in the 1970s the growers in the San Joaquin Valley in California brought in farmworkers from Yemen (and Mexico and Punjab and the Philippines and Vietnam and Puerto Rico...the list goes on and on). But given the political divisions in their homelands, the South Yemenis were almost all UFW supporters and the North Yemenis were Teamsters. Which led to constant fights in the barracks the growers provided.

It's an old story: the Salvadoran refugee community in Los Angeles was similarly fractured along political lines while the Ethiopian refugee community was divided by both ethnicity and politics.

AnsarAllah is the official name of the "Houthis". Also could accept the official names of South and North Yemen.
