Walk through Rua Santa Maria in the old town in the city of Funchal in Madeira and you will notice some doors transformed into pieces of art. This is a relatively recent project which aims to liven up the slightly run down area of the city (for more info see http://www.arteportasabertas.com/en/-info.html ). I thought it was a great idea and enjoyed taking photos of the doors painted by various artists.
Boa Vista was the second and final destination of my Cape Verde trip and the theme of this island is 'sand' as will be self-explanatory from the photos below! As for Sal, the best way to get around is to rent a 4x4, as the roads are either in bad condition or non-existent! This was one of my favourite trips, not only because of the amazing beaches and landscapes but also because of the friendly people and the fact that life there is very simple and stress-free. I am definitely looking forward to coming back and exploring the other islands of Cape Verde.
