(I love the first image)
Every week-day morning I drive (in my tiny car) from the East side of the island, over the Juliana Bridge to Otrabanda (this sounds far...but really its a 18 min drive.....with traffic). Otrabanda is part of the historic centre of Curacao. The streets are filled with beautiful momuments, most of them restored to their original state.
This is the building I work in. Last year the renovations were finalized.
It is such a wonderful building to work in. Beautiful on the outside, modern on the inside; splendid all-around.
