A Door in Pietermaai

  Cross this threshold to enter a law office.  It’s one of many popping up in the Pietermaai District of Willemstad, Curaçao.  

  

This neighbourhood is in transition. Beautifully restored buildings, like this one, stand side by side with badly neglected derilict structures.  

Small shops, bars, restaurants & boutique hotels have found their home in Pietermaai.  And, so have loads and loads of law offices and financial institutions. 
This one caught my eye.  

It always makes me happy to see grand, old, beautiful buildings restored. Stay tuned for more postings on our visit to Curaçao.

      Curaçao was a Dutch. You can really see that influence in the architecture.

        I immediately thought “Dutch.” 🙂 Guess my instincts were good.
