A place with the jinn inside it – Socotra, Heybaq road, 1978-79
A traditional lighter from Socotra when there were no matches and no dakaakiin (shops) on the island in 1978-79..
Almost every Socotran man when travelling across the island by feet had such a perfect gadget and a locally made iron rounded knife in one of his hands.
And as a quatrain of Soqotri wisdom short poetry says:
I shall take upon myself
To meet with who knows me!
I shall light up for myself
The fire by my tinder!
Old medical instrument from Socotra (in the 1970s) used for bloodletting
made from Socotran cow horn.
Walking along the roads of Socotra that time about 40 years ago – in 1978-79.
