scraping by
Tuesday 30 January 2018 - Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde

All in all, it was quite a shock to realise that Cape Verde is not ”just a beach” or even another Canary Islands but an African country battling severe water shortage, poverty, environmental concerns, illegal immigration from the mainland, crippling bureaucracy and corruption, drug use and

Another excursion was to see lemon sharks in the wild. Our minivan simply drove us to Baia da Parda on the east coast where you could rent sturdy rubber shoes if your own didn't suffice to protect against the rugged rocks on the seabed. And then we just trudged out, straight towards shark

Just a few minutes' walk along the beach promenade from our hotel, the pier of Santa Maria proudly juts into the sea. The old one was destroyed in a storm some years ago, and when no aid from the government was forthcoming to rebuild, the islanders took matters into their own hands. Here a lively

We also went on a full-day tour of the island and and were fortunate to have a Swedish guide who's married to a local and could tell us about the real life as experienced by capeverdians.As soon as you drive out from Santa Maria, it's virtually a desert with only wind-blown bushes and dirt roads.

Santa Maria has a population of around 25,000 and proved to be a fascinating blend of colourful houses next to building lots. Apparently, you only have to pay tax on a house once it's completed and this gives people a reason not to finish. Another reason is that living on the island is very

Thursday 25 January 2018 - Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde

Cape Verde is a nation of 10 islands (9 of them inhabited by half a million people) just off the coast of Senegal/Gambia and each island is very different from the next. Some lush and fertile, hence the name of the country, and some little more than volcanic rock covered in sand blown in from

Dag 3. Vandring tvärs över ön
Friday 30 June 2017 - Pico da Cruz, Paul, Cape Verde

Efter frukost kommer en stor buss och hämtar oss vid hotellet 8.45. Idag är det ca 30 personer med eftersom det är en tur som Solresor har. Vi åker buss en liten bit och börjar sedan att vandra. Turen går tvärs över ön och vi går ca 7 km. Det är lätt vandring på mestadels breda vägar.

En vecka med familjen!
Monday 9 November 2015 - Sal, Sal, Cape Verde

För ett par veckor sen kom vi hem ifrån Kap Verde där min fina mamma blev firad för att hon levt i 70 år (egentligen är hon blott 69 ända tills nu på onsdag, men skolomsorgen i Stockholm som brorsans barn deltar i bryr sig inte om det utan tycker att man ska hålla sig till att sola näsan

15:4-15 onsdag- åka hem Vaknade tidigt. Så packade vi det sista och åt sedan frukost på restaurangen somlig vid den första poolen (den som låg vid hamninloppet). Först återlämnade vi våra strandmadrasser och fick depositionsavgiften, 40 euro, tillbaka. Vi hade nu "nästan 200 escudo

Tuesday 14 April 2015 - Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde

14/4-15, tisdag, sol och snorkling. Vaknade efter att sovit gott. I dag gick vi till det frukostställe våra vänner från går rekommenderat, Cape Fruit. Här var väldigt mysigt och billigt. Juice, omelett, toast med hemlagad marmelad, kaffe, youghurt med frukt och flingor var precis lagom
