Fogo | Southern slopes with Achada Fuma and Bordeira
WI_cv078.jpg Fogo | Southern slopes near Achada FumaThumbnailsFogo | Resettlement to Achada Fuma

Panoramic view from the vicinity of Achada Fuma (visible on the very right side) up the S slopes of the island of Fogo to the Bordeira, forming the steep escarpment of a caldera on the back side. Also the partly eroded cinder cones in the upper centre of the photo clearly indicate the volcanic origin of the island. The lush green of the fields only persists for few months each year. After the short rainy season, colours quickly turn to yellowish and brownish in October or November, and remain so until the following August.
