Had to be close to Brazil, right? CURAÇAO--definitely Brazilian. And, thus, paradisiac rainforests, secret waterfalls, hibiscus splashing color everywhere... Right?
Wrong. Oh, I was wrong about so many things that 4th of July in 2003 when I hopped all over the Caribbean to get here. The first "wrong": my stay was temporary. Six months only.
Here we are, a decade later.
I fell in love. Pure and simple. Yes, with a man--but before I met him, I was already having this intense affair with Curaçao. I didn't care there were no rainforests (cacti and barren rock, anyone?) or waterfalls. (But look--just look at this display of Nature. Who needs freakin' waterfalls?)

(Yes, we have a guest bedroom. Hope you don't mind a fluctuating population of dogs.)
