In July 2008 i went to Ilha do Sal, in Cape Verde, for work. Sunday we rented a car and crossed the whole island. Ilha do Sal (Salt Island, in english) is a 30 km x 12 km small volcanic island, part of the archipelago of Cape Verde and the most touristic of them all.
This island has barely any vegetation and it's pratically all made of rests of an old volcano eruption, hence the name Ilha do Sal.
We were crossing north of the village of Espargos, trying to find the Buracona, in this place with no roads, just following the direction of a mountain in the horizon. When we were completely lost, we saw, in the middle of nowhere, this sign to Buracona, which is actually a very nice place, with a natural sea pool, caves where you can dive and the Blue Eye when the weather is sunny.
You can see the sea in the bottom of the picture.

Continua com suas viagens pela África? Já parei por aí, mas só fazendo escala, sem poder descer do avião. Interessante essa estrada, mas não parece ter nada a 2 km, realmente... O mar, bem longe, ficou bom, com as cores já fracas pela distância.

Verdadeira foto da ilha do Sal, se esquecermos os resorts de praia (Santa Maria) e as salinas.
