MASSIVE PALM TREE ATTACK

Mission São Tomé, day 10: Praia Jalé, on the southern coast. Look at those «layers». Probably the most pleasant beach in São Tomé. I am so curious about the beaches in Príncipe (São Tomé's twin island = I am going there to complete the work). Everyone in ST told me that they are much more beautiful than this one. «Much more», you see...

 

São Tomé e Princípe is an African country in the Gulf of Guinea, right on the Equator. A former colony of the Portuguese Empire, the island of São Tomé offers dramatic landscapes with torrents and waterfalls on its slopes, luxuriant mountains which culminates in Pico de São Tomé (2,024 m), sheer cliffs over the sea, as well as huge plantations (café, cacao) from the colonial era, primary rainforests filled with exotic birds, butterflies, black snakes and lush vegetation
