the lights

It was a warm September afternoon in Curacao, the sun was setting over the Caribbean sea as we made our way through the busy streets to the Avila Hotel. It was buzzing with people and music, all emerged in the spirit of Christmas (yes, I know, quite odd... It was 28 degrees, in September and here we were at a Christmas market with a Santa Clause and all). The bottles of water and the ice-stand replaced the hot chocolate and gluhwein, while we enjoyed the view of the beach and all the wonderful lights shining on the Octagon. 

Yet another interesting Saturday afternoon on this wonderful little island. 

Hope you had a light-filled weekend as well.
