20170916_082121WILLEMSTAD - The fifth Curaçao Clean Up last Saturday was a complete success. This is according to the members of the organization who emphasized that this year was on their initiative. They took care of St. Joris Bay, Caracas Bay, the downtown area and various underwater locations around the island.
