My Visit to a School in Curacao and Thoughts on School Uniforms
Scenes from the Charming Town of Sirmione on Lake Garda, Italy

The Colorful Town of Willemstad, Curacao


Untitled (1 of 1)-33One of the reasons I chose to visit Curacao over other Caribbean islands was the colorful architecture I saw in photos on the internet.  I love color and definitely was not disappointed.  Here are some photos of Willemstad which is the capital of Curacao.  I generally don't shop in general and or buy clothing when I'm traveling, but they had some really nice shops and boutiques which tempted me.  Below is a popular tourist attraction that most people want their photo taken in front of.

You can see the Queen Juliana Bridge in this photo which is four lanes and crosses Saint Anna Bay:

Here are some cannons that I saw in the middle of town.  I decided to share them in a relatively untouched photograph and an HDR version of the same scene.

Untitled (1 of 1)-78As with any city, one will see buildings in disrepair, but they were still colorful!

Of course they have McDonald's!
