As it was written by a poet, not only will, being and confidence change with time, but also the uses given to things and places. Once known as islands of Salt, Sal, Maio and Boavista turned into the Sun Islands; the salt pits gave way to pools, the long white sand extensions like the ones found in deserts, have become new havens on Earth for they are touched by beneficent and soothing waters that cure people of diseases caused by what they call modernity. Sal, Maio and Boavista are therefore no longer the islands of salt.

They are now the renewed Islands of the Sun at different stages of development, of course, circumstances that for many is not a malfunction, rather an advantage because they guarantee the enjoyment of the old vacationer dream of deserted beach.
