nos montanha :: our mountain

We live in a valley near the foot of Pico d’Antonia, the highest peak on Santiago. Every day we are lucky to see the changing face of this beautiful mountain, and we wanted to share some of those wonderful views with you.

This week’s picture of our mountain…

We were in Cidade Velha (at the southern tip of Santiago) for a festa (festival) and saw this familiar face. The canyon in the foreground of this photo is Ribeira Grande, where natural springs keep this otherwise very dry part of Santiago green year round. This area is where the Portuguese first settled in Cape Verde.
