07 Dec St Nicholas
7 December 2016
The day after the tour on Santiago we had a lovely (and a very fast) day of sailing to São Vicente. The next morning, we arrived and went on shore in Mindelo for a city walk along the most important highlights of the city. We also spend some time buying gifts and writing poems because we are celebrating St Nicholas. Our cook Richard had a very busy day because without pepernoten, taaitaai and banketstaven St Nicholas is not complete. Everyone put a lot of effort in the nice poems and there where many good ones. But we could not stay up to long because the next morning the most beautiful hike was on the program on Santo Antão and we must get up early to catch the ferry. And as expected everyone came back on board tired but full with stories about their experiences. Today we sail (with aching muscles) to São Nicolau.
