Cruising Curacao

Sandra and I were on our neighbor island, Curacao, all day Saturday. She had a mid morning doctor appointment, but the only flights we could get were at 6am and 9pm. So we had lots of time to visit a couple warehouse stores, walk around the downtown Punda shopping district, and visit the zoo. We also visited Burger King, Baskin Robbins and Pizza Hut. Fast food is a fun novelty, when you haven't had any for a few years.

I didn't bring a camera, but I wish I had. They had some very unusual large birds at the zoo, as well as a three day old baby monkey that was riding around on its mother's back.

The traffic was noticeably lighter on Saturday than the usual weekday, and the teeny tiny even-smaller-than-a-Toyota-Yaris car we rented from Budget was a lot of fun.
