More flights to Cape Verde from Boston

travel to Africa, Cabo Verde

It seems like every week or two I am writing about more nonstop flights being added to Boston’s Logan Airport. Earlier this fall I shared that Delta Airlines had made Boston its newest hub, then there was news that American Airlines was adding nonstop service to London and last week I shared that in 2020 Austrian Airways would be adding nonstop service to Vienna and Lufthansa would begin nonstop service to Munich.

This past Saturday, Cabo Verde Airlines announced that they will launch a second weekly flight between Boston and Cape Verde, Africa. The airline currently flies between Boston and Praia, Cape Verde on Mondays but starting December 14th it will have flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The nonstop flight is approximately seven hours.

Cape Verde, is a nation on a volcanic archipelago off the northwest coast of Africa known for its Creole Portuguese-African culture and numerous beaches. Its largest island, Santiago, is home to the current capital, Praia. Since the early 1990s, Cape Verde has been a stable representative democracy, and remains one of the most developed and democratic countries in Africa. Thinking of planning a trip?

Massachusetts RMV recognizes “Gender X”

non binary gender option in MassachusettsMassachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles now provides drivers with a third gender option to choose from. The option, “X,” is available for people to select who don’t identify as male or female.

This past Tuesday, during Transgender Awareness Week, Massachusetts state registry of motor vehicles (RMV) started offering residents a non-binary gender designation option for their driver’s licenses and ID cards. This was done as part of a system upgrade at the RMV and makes Massachusetts one of approximately a dozen states in the United States to recognize a third, non binary gender.

Almost on cue Massachusetts GOP Chairman Jim Lyons called this insane and railed against the change. I can appreciate there are people who’s heads spin at the idea of non-binary, but I don’t understand the need to make sure their point of view supersedes others or how decisions like this by the State of Massachusetts impact Mr. Lyons and those who agree with him. It seems like the same failed logic that was applied to opposing same sex marriages.
