When you see what we saw, you’ll hardly believe we are in Africa. But believe it or not this is Africa! On the island of Santa Antao, Cape Verde. The western-most island of the archipelago is the greenest of Cape Verde. In places it ressembles the Alps with it’s high mountains. In other places it feels as if you’re in deep lush green valleys of Asia. We take the ferry from Mindelo to Porto Novo. Then hike down the Paul Valley. One of the most spectacular trails I’ve ever seen.
