Come to the Sandgrains event @ Feng Sushi, Borough Market, on Sunday the 22nd between 3.30 and 5.30pm! There will be sneak previews of unreleased footage, a photoexhibition of Cape Verdean sand miners, and of course some sustainably sourced sushi.
After a long sleepless night at the airport, spent working with the wonderful free wifi there, we arrived at Mindelo on the island of Sao Vicente, part of the northern Barlavento archipelago.
We rented a flat (bartered to a great price by Francesca from our landlord Artur), and spent another intense 10 days there.
Mindelo is a strategic point for international fisheries: thanks to geological formations the port is the biggest and most active in all of CapeVerde.
We made several interviews with fisheries engineers, marine biologists and the CEO of the port's node for international and national fisheries. José ended his stay with us in Cape Verde and left for Gothenburg in Sweden. We spent only three weeks with him and it felt like three months!
