Carnival is a month long reason to have a good time. It’s a street party. It’s theatre. It’s history, food and folklore. It’s music that gets into your skin until you find your hips starting to move as if they had their own set of batteries. This image is a favorite. At first glance, you’re wowed by the intense grace of this woman in her elaborate costume. She’s bursting with passion. But then you notice the woman standing behind her, and it shows you another side of the locals. Simply put, she is just doing her thing, enjoying being part of the spectacle. She’s not taking it too seriously – she’s just having fun with it. She is a reminder of the inner peace you find in island living and the reason to come to Curaçao in the first place. To breath and let loose!
