Six days into the University of Rhode Island Cape Verde Delegation stay on the island of Santiago, the largest of the Cabo Verde Islands, off the coast of West Africa. This has been one of the most amazing trips I've ever taken.
The people, the food, the ocean, the air, the heart-felt goodness all around Santigo is humbling and energizing. I see relatives and friends so familiar around every corner I am often tempted to shout out their names. The photos do no justice to this incredible nation, the warmth of the people and their resolve to be the best in the world.
