The breezy, beach-lined capital of Cape Verde that also boasts friendly locals, great live music, and cheap and plentiful street food. It feels like a hybrid of West Africa and Portugal, especially with the style of architecture, laid-back and open minded lifestyle, and of course language. Praia is also a good starting destination before venturing to the other scenic islands.
Praia and Cabo Verde have some of the warmest most welcoming people i have ever come across, the landscape is pretty much arid volcanic island type but the culture is as untainted as it gets. There is more tourism at ilha do Sal because that is were the big airliners stop over while crossing the Atlantic and there is also excellent wind for kite surfing as well as regular wave surfing.
i love here soo much!
repaired the EE Endavour here for nine days, that's a ship, overhauled an auxiliary engine
