The Columbia Expedition Hits Maio Cape Verde

Day 5 - Maio
by Hit and Run History: The Columbia Expedition, 45 photos

Our first full day on Maio, we explore the capital of Porto Ingles. Their first stop in the Cape Verde archipelago, Columbia and Lady Washington took on livestock and the major product of this flat, dry island -- salt, for preserving.

We explore the harbour, and the old wharf, where countless slaves from West Africa were transferred to ships heading to Brazil, the Caribbean and North America.

Location: Porto Ingles, Isle of Maio, Cape Verde
