A hurricane passed through the Cape Verde Islands on Monday. On Boavista, the camps on Boa Esperanca and Lacacao beach were heavily damaged by the storm, tents were ripped in peaces and metal rods of tents and shadings were crushed. We are very lucky that nobody was injured and everybody is save. Currently we are surveying the damage, but we can foresee that at least the Lacacao Camp can not be rebuilt quickly. We will inform you as soon as we know more, please stay tuned!
