An archipelago nation off the coast of Senegal and Mauritania. It contains nine inhabited islands. There are far more people of Cape Verdean descent living in the New England area than there are Cape Verdeans in Cape Verde. By the way, "Cape Verde" means "Green CAPE," and Praia is not an island, it's the capitol city, located on the island of Santiago. And you're not going to find very many monkeys there. They're isolated to the very north of Santiago, near the city of Tarrafal, and that small colony of green monkeys was imported from the mainland.
Ami ta screbi en Kriolu gosi li, a lingua unica ki caboverdianos falam.
(Translates to "I am writing in Kriolu right now, a unique language which Cape Verdeans speak.)
