Former Miss USA: “Curaçao is an island of contrast”
“Abandoned, boarded up homes adjoin luxury hotels. Beaches with gorgeous unblemished water distantly neighbor oil refineries that spew colored clouds. Traditional Dutch style buildings are washed with bright Caribbean colors. On one side of the island a city lays thriving with industry while on the other, rural life dominates.”
The former Miss USA also states that where there is complexity there is depth, and in her weeklong trip to Curacao, she took pleasure in peeling away the many layers that make this autonomous country within the Kingdom of The Netherlands just plain beautiful.
