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.

I was walking through the grocery store and I had a tickle in my throat but I didn’t want people to think I was contagious so I let out a microcough.

a bunch of islands off the atlantic coast of africa. unpopulated area until the portuguese brought african slaves here to work on sugar plantations. although it's been a sovereign country since 1975, it is still dependent on portugal to survive economically. politically, however, the county is the most stable and prob. the freest in africa.
