          ... has to be imported into the island. There seemed to be a lot of construction going on and a lot of dilapidated buildings. Most of the "pretty" side was along the beaches. Still, a beautiful island nonetheless. At the end of the tour, I went back to the boat, ate, and headed to the beach where I took a nice, relaxing swim in the cool waters. Got a little dehydrated and felt a little sick afterwards, but nothing that sleep and water couldn't fix. ...

          ... that mixes African languages with the predominant European language of the particular island. More than any other force, African slavery has shaped these islands. Curacao was a transit point for slaves brought from Africa who were then sold off to plantations in South America and other Caribbean islands. Until the Europeans began abolishing slavery in the early 19th Century, slaves harvested the sugar cane that drove ...

          ... though, we only had 1/2 hour to catch our connector, which, for a continental flight is no big deal. Coming back from the Caribbean though, you have getting off the plane, going through immigration, going through customs, getting your bags, re-checking your bags, and getting to your gate. That makes it a pretty hectic 30 minutes. Enter the TSA. They tried their damnedest to get us to miss our connecting flight, but they failed. I get it, we ...

          Although we didn't visit the entire city, Philipsburg was fantastic. A quaint little beach-town nestled between gorgeous green mountains. The sand was white and the water was crystal clear. When we stepped off the boat, there were some nice little duty-free shops, but we just headed straight for the beach. Almost instantly I noticed birds, flowers, and trees I had never seen before. It didn't take but a 20-25 minute walk to see the beach.
