Cabo Verde


Cabo Verde or Green Cape, which, contrary to what its name implies, nowadays is not green at all. It is a 10-island country in the Atlantic, off the coast of Senegal, Western Africa. It forms part of the Micronesia eco region, together with Canary Islands, Madeira and Azores. Local legend has it that God, after completing Creation, rubbed His hands together and crumbs dropped into the Atlantic, forming the Cabo Verde Islands. However, the cold scientific truth is that these islands were the product of underwater volcanic activity. This time, "Travelling" visits Cabo Verde and discovers its amazing landscapes, unique culture and music and its vibrant, world-renowned carnival season.
