  1. Beautiful trailer, though it made me worry about their future with materialism. Presently I am in the Andes where the people are serene, tend the land, have little, yet the quality of their day is rich. I’ve witnessed in other areas where more money and foreigners come in, yes, they have more money, but they lose quality of life. They quite walking/biking and switch to motorcycles… they introduce chips and candies into their diets.. then obesity follows and more diet-related illness. I look forward to learning more about socotra island – thank you. z
