Anjouan (Comoros) from the sky


    Not much enjoyed by tourists because of its beaches of volcanic black sand, Anjouan lives mainly on the growing of vanilla, ylang-ylang and clove. Formerly territory, then overseas group, the island turned away from France by the referendum of December 22nd, 1974. French soldier of fortune Bob Denard led several military actions to the Comoros where he got married and became a convert to Islam.
