I wonder if I were to jump on the top of one of those mushroom tree things, would coins pop up into the air for me to collect?

I am completely with you on Socotra. In fact, I have spent roughly the past three years 'working on' convincing my sceptical (and probably correct) wife about a quick hop over from London. Most of all, I want, nay, need to see the wonderfully broccoli-like Dracaena cinnabari, a marvellous wonder of nature. Maybe this year...
