You're stranded on a desert island...

Thanks to Dark Roasted Blend, I think I've discovered the place in which I'd like to retire. Socatra is an island in the Indian Ocean, off Somalia. It is the most remote place on earth, and has over 700 rare species of flaura and fauna.

I love plants, and I love isolation. Look how awesome this place is.

This is a Desert Rose (adenium obesium). It's pretty.

These are called dracena cinnibaris, or Dragon's Blood Tree. They're pretty.

Only 40,000 people live there, and the first roads were installed only two years ago. It's governed by Yemen.
Look! More pretty Dragon's Blood trees! (they make candles and resin out of it).

This place totally looks like paradise to me.
And so...I'm stranded (albeit willingly) on Socatra, and I can only bring ten things with me. What are they?
1. Sketchbook
2. Lots of Bic mechanical pencils
3. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
4. My laptop (with a wireless card)
5. my animals
6. shampoo
You know...I don't think I need any more than that. Yeah...I think that'll do me.
