Thought for the day…” If opportunity does not knock then build a door”
“The difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is how you use them”
570km off the coast of West Africa are the 10 islands that make up the country of Cape Verde. Until 1975 they were a Portuguese colony, and are still also known by the Portuguese name of Cabo Verde. About 525 000 people live there, including about 130 000 in the capital Praia. Fishing and tourism are the main industries, although remittances from workers overseas make up a large part of the incomes there. About 90% of all food is imported, party due to the semi-desert climate on many of the islands.
And the photo today comes from Mindelo, Cape Verde islands. Simple use of bright colours and late afternoon sun….
and another photo from the archives….more colours but this time in Gambia…
