Full Moon Walk in Washington Park

If you are on Bonaire, don't miss the Full Moon walk in Washington Park on Friday, October 18.  Be at the park entrance, ready to go at 6pm.  Admission is free.
They suggest bringing a flashlight, sturdy shoes, and any snacks or drink that you might need.
Sandra and I went on a full moon walk in the Park back in 2009 and enjoyed it immensely.  Here are a few pictures from that event.

World Champion Windsurfer

Last week, in Germany, Bonaire's Kiri Thode was crowned Windsurfing World Champion in the Freestyle discipline.  Bonaire's Tonky Frans finished third and Taty Frans was sixth.
The guys returned to Bonaire last night to a hero's welcome.  There were so many people at the airport that the whole road from Bel Nem, past the airport to the Stadium, was packed bumper to bumper with cars.
Here is a link, I hope, to a facebook video documenting some of the excitement at the airport last night.
An award winning video documentary titled "Children of the Wind" chronicles the story of these guys.  Sandra has it on BluRay and she's bringing back home with her in a week or two.  My parents watched it already and really liked it, so I think I can heartily recommend it here.
Pa Bien guys!
