Curacao, Dutch Caribbean Thursday, January 19th 2006
It's been a hectic month since we've got back from South Africa. We finally were able to move the Windsurfing Centre to the new location. This location really is so much better than working from home. It's a very challenging task of getting the priorities in the right order and executing them with the little money we've got. The first task was to modify the container for board and sail storage. Oscar was great helping me and probably saved me a couple of days of foul language. After that we needed to build a shade, since the Curacao sun will burn anyone not protected. This time, Berend, was instrumental. The past few months he's been building a restaurant, Aloha, on Seaquarium beach,where we both grew up. My project pales in comparison of his, since it is an enormous task which took him more than 3 months to finish. With all his experience in dealing with contractors and materials, we were able to setup the roof in 3 days. (I had been pondering on it for a month).
