22 November 2014 | Ilha de São Vicente Cape Verde Island West Africa
This is a little out of order as the blog for the trip from the Canaries to the Cape Verdes is on another computer so it will show up after is one. We arrived on day 8, having a pleasant trip without ant wild weather. Cleared in and had to surrender the ships papers until we leave.......probably on Monday as the offices don't open on the weekend.
The cape Verdes are part of Africa. The official language is Portuguese ....unofficial is Crioulo a blend of Portuguese and West African. The total population of all the islands is 531046 (in 2013). The currency is Cape Verde Escudo which is 100 to €1. The coloured people are wonderful and we have been to their markets a couple of times. Things are expensive but almost everything is imported. Enjoying the break but will have to get back into the routine of broken sleep and odd eating hours. Planning on a minimum of 2 weeks from here to St Maartens in the Caribbean. Sorry you will read about getting here after this.
