Mad coloured houses, lots of fun
Curacao is an interesting island with an interesting history, it forms part of the Netherlands Antilles and is a mix of dutch attitude and caribbean flair.
The capital Willamstad is a colourful combination of colonial architecture and modern building, the buildings are quite literally painted all the colours of the rainbow.
At the mouth to the harbour of Willamstad is a really cool bridge - yes a cool bridge, made up of a series of 'pontoons' but look like a row of boats with a road going over them and a power boat at the end, the other end being connected to a swivel point on the harbour wall, when the time comes, the boat sticks its engine on and off he poodles till the bridge has been swung in place, its quite interesting to watch and I believe you can use the motor boat as a ferry to get to the other side if you time it right.
