Cape Verde – A volcanic gem off the coast of Africa.

A group of volcanic islands off the coast of Africa. Very arid, dry volcanic soil with no standing water and no lush undergrowth.

We went up to the top of the central volcano. From the top it was clear that the bay was a collapsed crater. One can only marvel at the colossal forces that were involved in its creation.
