For mor information about Soqotra
There is also a storytelling program
at the Exhibition.
In fact, there is a main trickster hero in Soqotran tales whos name
originally is Ali Bata`el which can
be translated as Ali Fox , Ali McFox
or Ali the Crafty (Bata`el is from
Mahri "'itha`el" - "a fox" but made
upon the Hadrami sceme: BaGammal,
BaWazir, BaKathir...)
