Colorful Willemstad

Painted Houses and Queen Emma Bridge

Queen Juliana Bridge

With all the holiday craziness going on, I've been remiss, both in highlighting my Thanksgiving vacation and all the recipes I've been knocking out in the past two weeks.   "Town" in Curacao is Willemstad, a very colorful port, with not just one, but two famous bridges.  The Queen Emma Bridge is on pontoons, is popular with tourists, and moves out of the way for boats and ships to get by and the Queen Juliana Bridge is one of the tallest in the world...some of those big ships can go under it.   It was a pretty place to spend a half day.
