103rd on my continuing saga beyond the #lakbay100 journey
August 30-31, 2019

My 81st solo backpacking trip21st country to visit in Asian continent104th country visited on my journey #lakbay100, 6th continent on my list and of course and usual budget do-it-yourself itinerary from arrival to departure. I did not research that much for this country due also on limited time and laziness.

Cape Verde is part of the region of Islands collectively known as Macaronesia. Despite its remoteness in elevation with all but 3 islands being mountainous, the lack of natural resources, its isolation from many other countries, and devastating famines in the later 20th century, Cape Verde has won a positive reputation in promoting what is considered the most stable democracy in Africa, a standard of living higher than most African nations, and one of the most politically liberal nations on the continent, and in the world.
