Cape Verde 24 March: Assomada - Tarrafal
the street party continues
Our first school is Liceu Amilcar Cabral in Assomada. It's a really large school and we received a loud welcome.
Waiting for us along the route were several small village schools. They formed a line along the curb to cheer us on.
Tarrafal Concentration Camp is a place where political prisoners were confined during the rule of the Portuguese dictator - Salazar.
Prisoners were brought here from all Portuguese Colonies, and many died here. The Camp was closed in 1974.
