Prepare to be amazed by this stunning video from the island nation of Cape Verde off the coast of North Africa, compliments of top contributor Rein Martens. Known also as Cabo Verde, it consists of a group of ten volcanic islands that resemble a backwards "C" on a map. Conquered by Portugal in the 1400's, the islands went on to play a critical role in the African slave trade. Independent since 1975, Cape Verde has become an eco-tourism magnet. This video was a DVOW finalist in August, 2019.
