Curaçao Continued

Curaçao is one of those places you’ll never tire of visiting.  If you’re a photographer it’s just that fun.  But, surprisingly for a Caribbean island, the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao) is incredibly dry.  Go into the interior of the island and you’ll find flora more associated with a desert  — cacti, mesquite, prickly shrubs, and grasses brown with thirst.

If you’re wondering why you would want to go into the interior, there is a rather unique ostrich ranch worth the visit.  Once you get back to Willemstad, however, you’ll once again find yourself practicing up on your panorama skills as the Old Town is perfectly lighted by the late afternoon sun.

  1. Very nice! Looks like a great vacation. 🙂

  2. I love the Dutch Antilles. Towns like Willemstad or Oranjestad look like candy-coloured versions of small Dutch towns like Delft or Dordrecht. Did you notice anything of the coronation, while you were there?
