As usual, the plan if to stay there for one night (South of the island).

This is a new place on the East coast that we must discover. They have donkeys coming from Angola.

Marapa is one of our partner and we'll do some project with them

For the first time, we'll visit this small food company (plantations with amazing tropical fruits + processing unit)

An old movie about some plantations during the Portuguese Colonial Era.

After a day of work, I'm sure you'll want to relax by learning some new dances such as Kizomba or Semba. The Brazilian Embassy also provides some classes of Capoeira.
