However, we are open to learning about your culture if you’re open to learning about ours. Teach us what you think we should know, but don’t be cocky and assume you know more. We might come across bossy and demanding, but if you stick around long enough- you will find that our insides are made of pudding and we will walk through fire for everyone we love. This only counts for the ‘darker’ YDK’s: don’t touch our hair. Let them know that it was a turbulent past and even though some people never let go of that mentality- we are not all like that. Overreact about how great the weather always is even though we all look older than we are due to excessive skin damage from excessive exposure to the sun that is in NO way further than ±2 km away from the top of the Christoffelberg. And finally, make them so jealous of where you’re from, that they’ll have no choice but to pay your ticket to be their tour guide for when they go visit (because “oh my gosh, it sounds magical!

But almost immediately after arriving, I was disappointed.
What they don’t show in the brochures is the oil refinery on the edge of town. I was also disappointed by the lack of affordable and accessible public transportation. They were friendly, helpful, and great conversationalists.
You know this beautiful, multicolored, waterfront photo that shows off the view Curaçao is famous for? I wanted to love it, but as I boarded my flight home, nothing in Curaçao filled me with sadness to be leaving or a desire to stay. Buses only run every two hours and taxis are incredibly expensive ( USD for a 15-minute cab ride). Outside Willemstad’s famous waterfront, I wasn’t too impressed by the scenery, buildings, or homes. There’s nothing like a little grime and wear and tear on a city to give it some charm, but in Curaçao, the grit only added a feeling of woeful neglect. I stayed in an Airbnb rental, and Milly, my host, was super friendly and helpful.
So here are the rules every foreigner should follow once they fall into the trap that is the stunningly beautiful heart of the YDK . Accept the fact that our pride comes before every other emotion. And we like to taste our food while we’re cooking it. Let us guide you through the world of Adobo and Badia. If you’re from the Netherlands: we knew more about the Netherlands (and probably the world) before we turned 12 than you know about Curaçao at the age of 21. No matter how you twist and turn it, we come from an island. Even though that might seem small, we have the biggest personalities you will come across. Unless we don’t want you for life, because life is a really, really long time.
We will seldom back down from a fight just for the sake of ending it. It’s not your fault and even if we try to make you feel bad about it, forgive us. This means that a lot of us have an island mentality.
I'm Dutch, live in the Caribbean, but not stuck to one place.
