On Tuesday night the rainy season finally found us. Hurricane Humberto, who later hit the US coast, was forming and getting angry just a few 100 kilometers off the Cape Verde archipelago. Boavista only received some heavy rain – but enough to take down the improvised bridge, that has been in place since last years rainfalls. After a night of downpour the dam had gone and a mighty river of rainwater was eating away trees and tons of soil. Absolutely spectacular to watch!
Luckily, our camp staff was well prepared and got through the wet night well – the only casualties were some wet sleeping bags.
