Not an identification query but rather a musing on how Boehmeria penduliflora which took a holiday to Reunion near Madagascar now finds iself an unwelcome guest as an uncontroled invader. But how did it get there?

The locals call it "bois de chapelet" which is the Rosary wood or Wood of beads - obviously!
Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.
