my trip to curacao
i'm fortunate enough to have friends who own a villa on curacao island (very small island next to aruba) and fortunate enough to be asked to spend a few days there with them in march. we were triple fortunate enough to be there during carnival (island equivalent of mardi-gras). every night there was a huge parade with the most wonderfully elaborate hand-made costumes, head pieces and floats as well as fabulous fun music. the images above were taken during the sunday day parade that started the week long celebration. unfortunately, i was in a really bad position for good photograph taking, but some people were kind enough to slow down and pose for me! enjoy!
