Boarding Kriola the steward issued the ubiquitous plastic bag should we wish to deposit the contents of our breakfast at any point. Rounding the breakwater the boat shuddered as it slammed into the waves. Katherine promptly reached for her bag.
We had to get to Santiago today, or miss our flight back to Boa Vista the following morning. With only 2 weekly flights on a Friday and a Sunday, if we missed it, we’d have to wait until the following Friday to get home. We quickly realised that 7 hours of this would be unbearable and totally unfair on the boys. Arriving in Fogo we admitted defeat and disembarked the boat. It was Saturday morning, the next flight from Fogo to Santiago wasn’t until Tuesday. Ah well – back to La Fora it was! Every cloud has a silver lining!
