I recently visited Cape Verde and stayed on the small island of Maio. I visited the island for appx. 2 weeks. One day, while spending some time at one of the beaches there, I took this photo of a lonesome cow standing at the shoreline attempting to cool down. Cape Verde is a beautiful, sometimes barren and in many parts poverty stricken country. Though i was only able to visit 2 of the islands when i was there, it was a very humbling experience. The Cape Verdeans are beautiful, kind people and I will also remember this trip and this photo.
