Cabo Verde: teaser set :)

“Teaser set” because even before finding time to show you the different stories of this trip, I wanted to share some random photos of the island :)

The first words you see when getting out of Sal airport. Crioulo, besides being a sweet sounding tropical portuguese, seems to have adopted some words for the benefit of the international crowds :)

hotel? mirage?

In Portugal, we used to have one practice called "a seca do bacalhau" (the drying of the codfish); here the codfish are tourists :)

these stripes are not meant to signal how deep the snow is… :)

the pier - Santa Maria - Sal island

making a movie…

the film star :)

urban planning…

salt extraction (and more…) in old vocano crater…

salty baths :)

desert winds (careful with your camera lens)

water interlude near Buracona :)

this is art… :))

… and this too! :))

papagaio fish

the harbour

just posing for the souvenir pic… bbbrrrrr too cold!

fitness on the beach…

dance teacher…

big newcomer on the horizon…

successful business transactions :)

ha ha you know NITTINPLP: he's always ready for an extra joke and fun and somehow he put your name and salsa in the same sentence! So i just had to push it a bit further and recreate you as a super skilled latino choreographer :)

we can accompany you by singing all those "S" words:

A "funky salsa choreography" ??? No problem! But at first I need a bucket (or two!) sangria with 1m straws!!

I like that expression: "perceived dance teacher"... and I'm sure Silke would make a funky salsa choreography just for us! :))

The teaser set makes me want to leave the snow, which is still falling and head for the sand. beautiful set and I love the descriptions. The striped poles and the last photo are favorites.

Olá, obrigado pela visita!

nesta altura do ano, Cabo Verde é mesmo muito vento e frio! Obviamente não sabia disso... tal como a maioria das pessoas de outros países europeus que lá encontrei! :(
Uma pessoa vê no mapa a localização e aquela latitude parece segura garantia de calor mas... pelos vistos não é bem assim! :(
E nesta mesma altura do ano já tinha estado em Cuba, Miami, Porto de Galinhas/Recife ou Goa/India! E em todos os casos não faltou calor!

LOL - my favourite is No 19 !!
Because at first I thought the
THICK MAN - on the right( too much german beer???) - with his SEXY (!???) bathing slip (*!"§$%&) -
is the dance teacher !!
