Just got back from a business trip to Cape Verde. In case you are wondering, Cape Verde is a group of islands off the coast of Senegal in West Africa.
Boy, it is a beautiful country! Totally not what I was expecting, after the trip to Tanzania in the middle of the year. The only bad thing is that it is just too damn far from Singapore… It took me some 40 hours to get to their capital, Praia and another 30 hours to get back to Singapore from Praia. The reason for the the extra 10 hours to get there? I had to layover for almost 12 hours on another island, Sal, as there wasn’t a direct flight that day… So yup, I slept like a hobo in the airport.
A pretty uneventful biz trip, just some minor hiccups here and there, no biggie. This is the type of biz trip I prefer, not much surprises and things going to plan. Would like to have some free time to go explore around though. But you can’t have everything 😉
