The flight from Lisbon arrived two hours later than scheduled in São Tomé. I went to retrieve my luggage only to discover it had not arrived! Luckily I had a carry-on with toiletries and a two-day change of clothes. We were transferred to Omali São Boutique, a small, beautiful, oceanfront, boutique hotel. I decided I was not going to let lost luggage ruin my stay. Due to the late arrival and early morning departure to meet and board a cruise ship, I only took photos of our evening meal before going to bed. I hope you enjoy this link and see what a beautiful facility this is and learn a little something about São Tomé. http://www.omalilodge.com/
São Tomé and Principe islands were believed to have been originally uninhabited, were explored by Portuguese navigators in 1471 and settled by the end of the century. … The Portuguese revolution of 1974 brought the end of the overseas empire, and on July 12, 1975, Lisbon granted Sáo Tomé independence.
