17/28.- Aruba, Windmill


Think we're in Holland? Could be. This windmill was first built in 1804 in Holland. It was then shipped to Aruba piece by piece and reconstructed in 1960. It's now a restaurant, by the way. Dutch is the official language of Aruba, but Arubans also speak Spanish, English and Papiamento, a language developed in the neighboring island of Curacao in the 1500's. In addition, some also speak French and German. And if that's not all, sometimes people speak several languages at the same time, in the same conversation. If you like to talk and meet new people, talk to an Aruban for he or she is sure to be ready to communicate. It's fun too just listening to their conversations.
