Driving around Sal

It’s not all turquoise beaches and tourist resorts.

Cape Verde is slowly developing and building its tourist industry, but still suffering deeply with poverty.

The buildings are very colourful, there never seemed to be two buildings the same colour side by side.

The roads are not all typical tarmac, sometimes a left or right turn takes you off road off the beaten track – which is quite quirky and an interesting contrast!

Below is just a taste of what it looks like when you’re on the road, away from the postcard pictures.

This is an actual mirage of water in the distance, the first I’ve ever seen in real life. I didn’t realise that the wind, sun reflection and dust work together to create the illusion of water against skyline.
