cape verde reminds me of the caribbean...

the caribbean is a creole stronghold aside from Brazil and Lousiana.
Even though I have loved ones who are racially creole in origin...

it STILL trips me out to go to caribbean functions/family reunions and see people who look like this!! grin grin



lol...

interesting... smiley

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Cape_Verde

The Portuguese soon brought slaves from the West African coast. Positioned on the great trade routes between Africa, Europe, and the New World, the archipelago prospered from the transatlantic slave trade, in the 16th century.

Iz it a rich Island?
Re: The Beauty Of Cape Verde by Nobody: 9:17pm On Jul 01, 2012
According to wiki:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Cape_Verde

Cape Verde is a small archipelagic nation that lacks resources and has experienced severe droughts. Agriculture is made difficult by lack of rain and is restricted to only four islands for most of the year. Most of the nation's GDP comes from the service industry. Cape Verde's economy has been steadily growing since the late 1990s, and it is now officially considered a country of average development, being only the second country to have achieved such transition, after Botswana in 1994. Cape Verde has significant cooperation with Portugal at every level of the economy, which has led it to link its currency (the Cape Verdean escudo) first to the Portuguese escudo and, in 1999, to the euro.

Statistics
GDP $1.68 billion (2009 est.)
GDP growth [/b]1.8% (2009 est.)
[b]GDP per capita
$3,900 (2009 est.)
GDP by sector agriculture (9.2%), industry (16.5%), services (74.3%) (As of 2009)
Inflation (CPI) 4% (2009 est.)

Population
below poverty line 30% (As of 2000)
Labour force 196,100 (2007)
Labour force
by occupation N/A (As of 2008 )
Unemployment 30% (As of 2008 )

Main industries: food and beverages, fish processing, shoes and garments, salt mining, ship repair
Ease of Doing Business Rank 119th[1]


So I wouldn't say it's rich...it's developing but still has a lot of issues.
