I received this card on Wednesday and was surprised to see it was from Eileen. You may remember her as being one of the most generous people I have had the pleasure to cross paths with as seen here and here and many more wonderful times! She recently travelled to Cape Verde on holidays and sent me this card. That beach is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. On the card and in our subsequent email exchange she tells me there was a violent storm while she was there. All services, including postal were literally washed out. They were confined to their hotel for a week which she said wasn't too bad especially given what the locals had to face. Eileen deserves props for collecting and organizing basics - toiletries, clothing, etc from the various hotel guests to give to the residents who literally lost everything. Such a sweetheart! Once again, Eileen thank you for thinking of me and brightening my day!
