Cape Verde

Description

Cabo Verde, Vulcano of Ilha do Fogo

Cape Verde is an island country in the Atlantic, about 500 km off the coast of West-African Senegal. As a country it is relatively young, having gained independence from Portugal only in 1975. It consists of 6 windward islands ((Santo Antão, São Vicente, Santa Luzia, São Nicolau, Sal, and Boa Vista) and 4 leeward islands (Maio, Santiago, Fogo, and Brava), all of volcanic origin and relatively arid with rainfall (if any) only from August until October. It’s greenest between september and january. Santiago is the largest Island, Mt Pico (2829 m) on Fogo Island is an active volcano and Cape Verde's highest peak. Not all islands are equally mountainous, and some are outright deserts.

The island group can be compared with the Canarian Islands, also dry and volcanic, but they are smaller, more the size of the Azores.

Most popular for hiking are the islands of Santiago, Fogo, Santo Antão, São Nicolau and São Vicente. Landscape, fishing villages, tropical vegetation combined with bizarre rock formations, it all adds to an exotic walking experience. Moreover, tourism has brought facilities, also inland, and cheap package holidays bring the islands within reach for everyone. Trails are sometimes marked, and it is possible to hire a guide locally. Hiking maps and trail descriptions are available.

  • This product is used for crushing and processing precious metals and semiprecious stones. It is used for processing precious and semiprecious stones, crushing metals in the chemical industry.

    This facilitates to break nails with bare hands after a 10-20 second dive. Heavy water changes the properties of the metal, making it brittle. But at the moment of evaporation of heavy water, the rock returns to its previous state.
