Salvador to Cape Verde take two hopfully with pictures.
The last night in
Our departure for Saturday morning, there was a good chance that the town would be lively Friday night
And all we had to do was find the source of the music. So we got a taxi from the marina to the central policed
Sector of town had a bit of local food, then found a local bar where the music was playing and all of the customers where local, half of whom were already dancing to the beat of Samba. The bars are also Samba
Clubs so will have a number of bands that use that bar as their local practice and gig venue the Music is
Great and the Dancing is superb, I know that Jacky would have loved it. Just in front of our table there was
of people one of whom recognised us from the
Them and were trying to teach us the moves on the floor, No chance with me but Niamh was a little better.
The rest of the night was spent in their company despite our very poor ability to communicate, but we
Could still all enjoy the music and atmosphere. At about 12.30 they were all ready to go on to the
Night clubs, but we were far to sad and boring and said our goodbyes and headed back to the marina, after
All we had to be up early to fuel up and get on our way we had another 1900 miles to Cape Verdes with the
Wind likely to be coming from bad angles and either to strong or to light, back once more to the pleasures
Of sailing Close to and over the Equator
Nazare street market and Easter festival
Markets over time to go Home
colourful street nightlife in
Drum procession around the streets drum master has shaved head and don’t mess with his beat, dancers follow.
We are at present just north of the Equator so far we have managed to do 800 miles in one week that is about
115 in every 24hours so as you can imagine things are pretty slow around here for now. So that is why the web
diary is being done. The engine is on and has been running for the last 24hours, We caught 2 good sized dorado this morning I have also done my laundry for this week, so no more fishing for a while, I have just read
the book 1421 in about 2 ½ days, so what the hell am I going to do for the next 8 or 9 days. One thing that
does effect things is that this passage we are sailing with just 2 person that means that our chance for good
sleep at night is less and we probably only get 5 hours sleep a night so the afternoon siesta is becoming very
a whole new way of life is dawning.
That’s all from the middle of the
read, Maybe Wilbur Smith as we are about to go back into
so lots of new experiences to look forward to.
