If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that earlier this year I got the chance to visit Cape Verde, which is a set of islands just to the west of Africa. I would say this is as close to paradise I have ever been! The water was as clear as diamonds and the sand as white as snow. It was truly beautiful although there is another side to Cape Verde, the poverty.
I was lucky enough to stay in an amazing hotel which had running water and food around the clock but this is not the case for the people of the Cape Verde islands, they don’t have running water and have to collect a bucket of water every morning to last them the day in 30 plus degree heat, they have no food and their main town has about 50 houses with many on the outskirts being something like you see on children at need! It was truly heart wrenching to see and experience and makes me reflect on how lucky I am to have everything I have. I thought I would share some more photos with you today and share what a beautiful place this is to visit with you in the hope that more people will want to go and help out the local community!
