Update Your Maps

You may have missed this, I certainly did for a little bit, but back in October, the nation of Cape Verde- sitting off Africa's west coast- submitted a name change to the United Nations, preferring to call themselves Cabo Verde. It still translates to 'green cape' either way, but now the official name is all in the same language.

It hasn't completely made it around the grapevine yet, as Cabo Verde isn't the most prominent country on the planet. You'll still hear it being called Cape Verde for a while, but it should trickle through eventually. In the meantime, the designation will probably be something like that on, "Cabo Verde (formerly Cape Verde)".

So just a heads-up, the next time we get around to talking about them.
