One of Cape Verde’s busiest ports and the main port on the island of Sal.
Sellers in the area will approach you as soon as you set foot out of your tour bus, they will follow you around and walk with you asking you to buy something – everyone wants a sale from you, even if they end up negotiating down. I’ve never been followed around by sellers before, so this was a little intense. Before you go getting annoyed, just remember that the people here are relatively poor compared to visiting tourists, and sometimes its more about ‘giving a little’ rather than whether you actually need another baseball cap, necklace, pair of sunglasses or sarong!
The rum was really sweet, they add something like honey or syrup to it.
