In 2006 NATO performed exercises in Cape Verde. It included simulation of attacks to terrorist bases and helping civilian population in case of volcano eruption on Fogo Island. The troops from several nations enjoyed very much their free time in Cape Verde, either in town and on the beaches. I've never seen so many military vehicles and uniformed people in a city or countryside.
The Cape-Verdeans enjoyed also the meeting of people from other countries. Many local businesses beneficited too.
