Sao Antao
We took the local ferry to the neighbouring island of Sao Antao.  After a great deal of haggling we secured the services of a driver and van (although he still picked up so many other passengers that the van was full to overflowing) and off we went round the island for the day.  Lots of sights, sounds, smells, poverty but fundamentally happy people.  Not at all geared for tourism, which was a nice change.
