Hello!
Outstanding view of the outskirts of Mindelo. A magical moment captured.
Greetings,
Francisco

Default To xuaxo: Good Morning Mindelo

Hello Fancisco,
it was a fleeing moment indeed. I've been wondering if they are guns on top of that hill, do you know?

Best regards
Reijo

As far as I know, there are no guns on top of that hill. What we see on your photo is something else, just a coincidence of something similar in shape.
Cape Verde has a very small army and coast guard.

Thank you for letting me know Francisco. I'm relieved, it must have
been my wild imagination!

Wink Guns in Sγo Vicente Island

In Sγo Vicente Island there is a military area near the Monte Cara, in a place called Morro Branco. It is in the opposite direction of the harbor, seen from Mindelo city. But don't worry; if you go there, the military simply don't let you enter the gates (like all over the world), but almost for sure they are nice to you and will enjoy a little talk.
On the summit of the island, in Monte Verde (top of my last photo), there are communications antennas and other buildings guarded by the military. But, also, they are nice people, they won't be violent. You can go to the summit of Monte Verde freely and enjoy the view.
