    Favorite thing: FOR ADULTS ONLY!

    This is a picture of the driver who took me to the airport. He is very friendly and polite. He helped everyone with their bags. He is also a safe driver. How did he smell? Just fine. No issues. In fact I liked the guy, so I cut out his face so he won't get into trouble.

    So what did he do?

    For some reason he decided that it would be ok for the second song on his loud playing CD to be gangster rap. So down the bumpy road we went with a buss full of folks including several retired couples. And it went something like this:

    Yo better respect me you F****** W****
    Yo are my F****** B****
    Yeah yo F****** C***
    Leave me and I?ll put a cap in your F****** P****

    I thought I was hearing things, but no ? it was pure filth. Then I started looking at the people my age who were looking at me. Then we looked back at the older couples in the 60-80's. They looked like they had been stunned by an electric cattle prod.

    Just at the end Mr. Driver became self-conscious and turned it down right after the last lyric.

    Oh my.

    When in Cabo Verde you must...

    by PFerreira Written Sep 2, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When in Cabo Verde you must not forget to delight yourself with local cuisine, and to drink Grog (it's a bit strong and distilled of sugar cane).

    Also take some tours around the islands. They are worth your time :)

    Fondest memory: well it's a bit hard to choose something when it come to Cabo Verde, but the thing i miss the most is the people.
