... would get a whole apartment for the same price; WOW! not complaining there!
We had a pool in our view, lovely Caribbean breezes day and night, topped off with warm welcoming temperatures around 32 degrees Celcius.
I decided to do some grocery shopping, draw some cash and chill for the rest of the day. Hello Curaçao! :)
My friend, Herman was only to arrive the next day, so I took an early night in, enjoying full custody of the whole apartment!
It's only 30 miles from Aruba so I pictured the ship going in circles since we had all night to get here. We took a 2 hour tour, it was pretty good. Govt is restoring many houses.
