No problems with Dutch people.

By Peter on Tuesday 12 March 2019.

On March 20, Bonaire, the special municipality of the Netherlands, elects a new local government. The political relationship with the Netherlands is still an important point of discussion in these elections nine years after "10-10-10".

The Hague is also very interested in the election process. Although getting information in advance is difficult. It is striking that only three of the eight parties published their party program last month.
In this way the others hope to keep "party program steward" minimal.

Small island

By Peter on Sunday 3 June 2018.

Even though Bonaire is only a small island, the distances can be great, and it is too warm to walk. A rental car  or scooter is therefore desirable during your stay on Bonaire.

On Bonaire, people drive on the right-hand side of the road and most international traffic rules apply. You must remember that traffic going straight on always has right of way. Speed restrictions are signposted in km/hour. Distances are also shown in kilometers.

Salt mining

By Peter on Sunday 11 March 2018.

During the 19th century, more than 50,000 kilograms of salt were shipped from Bonaire to the Netherlands.
