An emigrant population! PDF Print E-mail

Few reasons why I am away from my place of birth - Cape Verde... an excerpt from a radio interview done with an emigrating Capeverdian...

Often people ask me where Cape Verde is and I reply saying we are right at the meeting point from three continents in the ocean and we are an island nation. Yes, I agree we are a nation of emigrants with more emigrants than residents - quite a strange situation but countries like Maldives will relate to the problem sooner than others. To continue further, we have summer climate throughout the year with some rains in three months off and on. Cape Verde has a colonial history with the Portuguese and with the advent of slaves from Africa a new Creole culture began.

Cape Verde residents flock to the USA the most, however, a few of us do travel to Europe with hopes of settling there. Marketing jobs in the UK with companies like Oracle Advertising helps to gain a foothold. The Capeverdian today is a true wanderer and looks to far off lands for better opportunities.

However, the sea and mixed culture of my place is like no other and keeps me moored even as I stay far away from the place of my birth.
