Curacao and Aruba

Caribbean-Curacao-Willemsted  This is my second time here. I have enjoyed Curacao and this time was no exception. The very colourful houses on the waterfront and that area is great to walk around. This part of Willemsted is a World Heritage Site. 

Since I was last here Curacao had it owns stamps again. So Curacao stamps. Same post office. In fact they had a lot of the old Netherlands Antilles stamps still on display. 

Caribbean-Aruba-Oranjestad This island was full of cruise passengers when I arrived. To be fair to Aruba I had only one overnight here , but it seemed a place just for shopping and lying on the beach. But I guess that is what a lot of people come to the Caribbean for. 

I went to the Post office on the Quay area where all the cruise ships come in . Apparently this is not the main post office. They had little or no choice. This is unusual for the Caribbean. I was not in the form of walking or trying to find the main post office.

  1. David, I took that walk to the Main Post Office in Aruba, the walk was long and hot, I got lost a couple of times. However , in the end, it was worth it, a huge , clean building with lots of stamps to see and buy in the Philatelic section. But,there was still that hot, long walk back.
    Take care, Glenn
