NexTourists escaped from winter at Curaçao, one of the "ABC Islands" (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao), just north of Venezuela.
Downtown Willemstad, an UNESCO World Heritage Site and capital city, with Dutch colonial architecture.
The Queen Emma Bridge is a pontoon bridge between two sections of Willemstad.
When we were walking across the pontoon bridge, it swung open to allow a small boat through.
When it is fully open, a ferry takes pedestrians across the river.

Bright Caribbean colors at the market
A good time to sit and rest...while your partner shops.

After a day of lounging and playing it was nice to gather at Happy Hour.
Some of the ladies loved this nearby establishment, Boca 19.
We enjoyed a bonfire and beautiful music on our last night.
