We had a tremendous advocate, the agent Maketse Yssouf, who made clearance easy. We mostly just had to follow him around while he took care of business, bystanders to the generally protracted and occasionally uncomfortable exchanges with officials. He went far beyond the call of agent services (like ferrying Evan from Ceilydh around on many trips on the back of his motorbike, to find wood and screws to fix their catwalk on arrival, then diesel before departure when the island was experiencing a fuel shortage, and being our guide/translator for walks around town and daytrips in the island). He’s the man to know in Anjouan (future visitors: he’s reached at 002693324340 or email@example.com).
