Mindelo, São Vicente, Part IV of IV – Tips on tricks
Next day was my last day on St. Vincente so I figured I’d rent a car and go around the island. I already made a day trip with a German girl who introduced me to Leo to a place called Calhau from where I was hoping to get to the island of Santa Luzia, a deserted but still a good size island with what was supposed to be one of the best beaches on Cape Verde.

If you doing some serious travelling, Mindelo would be your natural break from that serious travelling.

My first trip to São Vicente Island city of Mindelo Cape Verde August 2008
