Curaçao is another Lesser Antilles island I had the pleasure of visiting. It measures only 171 square miles and has a population of about 160,000. One thing that I found the most fascinating with islands in the Lesser Antilles is that a majority of the people I met spoke at least 3 languages: Papiamentu, Dutch, and English. A GEAT handful of others also knew how to speak Spanish and French.
There were so many pretty sights to see, good food to eat, and beautiful beaches to visit, but the highlight of my trip to Curaçao was definitely visiting the Kura Hulanda Museaum; it’s a museum that gives an unfiltered look into the brutal slave trade that existed not only on the islands, but all over the world as well. It was not the easiest thing to walk through to be honest, but it is history that is important and that needs to be seen, talked about, and learned.
Take a look at some of the pictures I took while there.
