Dushi has many meanings in Curaçao, but when you see it alone, such as in the signage above, it means nice. And nice is indeed a fitting description for the visitor to this wonderfully charming World Heritage Site in Curaçao. Willemstad, the capital city of Curaçao, is a marvelous blend of charming architecture and bright colors that will delight the photographer or casual observer at every turn.
Street art is everywhere here, and by that I am not referring to graffiti for there is little evidence of that anywhere to be found.
Even the local bars and cafés get in on the act:

But the cafés serving the green space between Breedestraat and Hanchi Snoa interject a little humor as well:
By the way, this green space is a fun, wide pedestrian street with much to see:
Another small but park-like space is located on a back street nearby, but for the life of me I cannot recall exactly where. You’ll know when you see The Gold World near this café:
The green wall to the left of the image above has some fun street art as well, a portion of which I’ll show on this week’s Fun Photo Friday. Wherever it is, my photo time stamp places it about five minutes’ walk from this neat bell-ringing display on Breedestraat:
I’ll leave you today with these images from Willemstadt:
Слава Україні! (Slava Ukraini!)
