Hi Linda. Many years ago whilst flying out to South Africa, our plane lost an engine while landing in Ilha de Sol (sp) in the Cape Verdes. We had to spend nearly 2 days there and we were shuttled to the islands only hotel. I can still see the donkeys that were tethered beside the they wouldn,t eat all the vegetation. Oddly enough, I,ve never been back. lol
