The Caesarean of Three Continents


'Rotcha Scribida': These words are not Portuguese, but Kriolu. They refer to a rock on the São Nicolau island which is inscribed with a message in a written language that has not been deciphered. It points to the presence of other peoples on the island long before the Portuguese arrived. The markings are now very hard to make out, erosion having taken their toll on them.
