About the Author

Having updated Bradt's well-established Cape Verde guidebook for its 6th edition (2013), Murray Stewart is ideally placed to carry out the update for the 7th edition. An understanding of Portuguese and a network of island-based contacts allows him to keep up-to-date with what's going on in the archipelago from afar, essential in a destination that changes quickly. He keeps abreast of developments through the A Semana website, Cape Verde's daily newspaper. Colum and Aisling's first guide to Cape Verde was published in 1988. Aisling is a journalist and writer, specialising in the environment, the developing world and science. A former Daily Telegraph correspondent, she has won several prizes for her feature-writing and has contributed to books on a variety of subjects, including Bradt's guide to solar eclipses over Africa. Colum is a humanitarian worker. He worked for Medecins Sans Frontieres and now works for the UK government's Department for International Development. Colum and Aisling have lived in, and written about, a range of countries including Zambia and Angola. Their other joint book is In Quest of Livingstone: A Journey to the Four Fountains, about their retracing of David Livingstone's last journey.
