We've hit the big time people

Located off the western coast of Africa, Cape Verde was colonized by Portugal in the fifteenth century. Flying there from Portland, one would fly to Newark to Lisbon and then on to Praia, on the island of Santiago. Here, let's take a look.

That there are the Cape Verde islands. This evening, AdRi and I were honored to entertain the American consul to Cape Verde in our home. Here is a picture of the momentus occasion.

Oh okay. (this is where the record screeches) I'll cut the formality. Here's the reality, but she IS the American consul to Cape Verde! Safe travels KiTho! Woot! Woot!

I saw a movie set in Cape Verde! Are you impressed?

I am impressed with the way your El Jardin is looking!

So is this a friend? Relative?

That is way cool! What's the story behind the visit?

Okay, I'm very impressed two of my readers have seen a movie in and about Cape Verde. And good eye to you, Rozanne, for peeking around the garden there: yes, it's getting to be super lovely right now. I'll post more pictures of it soon.

The story behind the visit is that she's a good friend of AdRi's sister, and ours, and stayed over before her flight back to Cape Verde. And yes, she has a diplomatic passport. I got to touch it.
