Willemstad day and night 

Posted by Pastor Ron Saturday, December 17, 2011 8:31:00 AM

Willemstad is the capitol of Curacao. A beautiful harbor city with colorful buildings and bustling activity day and night. The harbor is spanned by a high arched bridge for vehicle traffic and a floating pontoon bridge for pedestrians. The pontoon bridge opens partially many times during the day for boat traffic and completely several times a day for large ships.

At night the buildings that line the harbor are lit with colored lights and the pontoon bridge is lit with colored arches.

More tomorrow on the arched vehicle bridge and the meaning of 'Streng Verboden Voor Voetgangers'.
