After a happy time hiking, we traveled to Inle Lake.  This is a very large lake where people still live and work as they have done for hundreds of years. We arrived at the lake and we went into a long, narrow boat with a very noisy motor! It was a very exciting boat ride. […]

The Museo Boneriano, or Museum of Bonaire, is located right outside of the town of Kralindijk, and is an easy place to walk to. It’s housed in a restored island plantation house from 1885, and […]
