Praia da Laginha at sunset

So I have been in São Vicente for the past 3 days and it has been a blast. This is definitly more of a fun place to be than Sal. It has a lot of life and is very interesting place to be. People are friendly and fun to be with.  The only hickup here is the poverty you see in the street, a lot of kids begging, best way to handle is ignore and give nothing. There are some very annoying and insistent and you should avoid caving in because the day after is even worst! The nightlife is good, I would suggest a stop over the "club Naútico" if your into sailing and the sea or for a friendly environment go to Cafe do Mar in the main square near Hotel Mindelo, it is a cybercafe also and the girls are very friendly and sweet. I've being in the Hotel Mindelo and it is a good hotel, maybe a bit expensive for the usual backpacker but heck it was my boss who payed for it! The advantage of this hotel is that is close to everything.

Coffee place on the beach of Laginha
For some relaxing go to the Laginha beach were at the end of the day you have a wonderful sunset over Mindelo bay, and you can watch the dozens of fit maniacs taht exist in this place. and if you are lucky you might see a couple of acrobats training, has I did last wednesday. 2 guys from a performance group were they do different kinds of acrobacies and jumps, they actually are going to perform next month in Austria. So I was lucky to have it for free in the place they practice, the beach :D

Well today I'm off to sea, going to work like hell I hope I might be able to update the travel blog but I think it might be only in 2 months time when I get back to shore that I'll do it.
