Santiago’s biggest mountain, Pico da Antónia, loomed behind our house. At over 4500 feet tall, the mountain was visible from most parts of Santiago and from the neighboring islands as well. Not a bad view to take in with your morning coffee. Last year Jen highlighted a series of photos of Pico da Antónia titled “Our Mountain”.*
*Though Jen and I spent the first half of our Peace Corps service in Cape Verde, most of the photos we’ve shared on this blog have been of our second post — Benin. The next several weeks’ posts will be a flashback to our first year of service spent on the lovely island of Santiago.
