The colorful waterfront shops of the capital, Willemstad.
Of all the ports we traveled to on this cruise to Southern Caribbean, our stop in Curacao was the longest. We got there early and left really late. In fact, Marc and I witnessed the city actually close as we walked around the capital. Many stores, if not all, closed by 5 and the tourist area was pretty much deserted. It was so unlike during the day when people were everywhere.
I remember us exploring the not so touristy side of the city too. We passed by stores from where the locals made their purchases and restaurants where they hung out with friends.
Such wonderful memories for sure. Given that I am writing this blog entry a year after my trip to the island, I can't help but enjoy the memories of having traveled there a second time. I hope the third and fourth visits are not far away. There are other attractions I would like to see there and here's hoping cruising will return to normal very soon.
