Bon tarde,

Well, we decided to paint the roof today. Mind you, we have had hardly any rain for many months. Today, we’ve had intermittent sprinkles, mainly to the south. It’s not really amounting to anything but annoying all of us, trying to get the roof finished. I am painting it KLM blue again. I probably should have approached KLM to sponsor me given the fact my roof is the closest to the arrival runway :)

Hope everyone is having a blissful day in the Caribbean!

Bon Noche

The drought prevails on Bonaire. We had a brief period of rain that washed away some dust but the landscape remains parched. I put of a massive tub of water daily and it’s empty within hours. Our donkeys are suffering no doubt. I also noticed the goats are very thin. There is no vegetation for them to feed. Walking up Sera Largu I could not believe how dry the island is…there is absolutely no green in the “kunuku”….even the cactus is brown. 

Praying for rain…

We need rain. There was a bit in January and two weeks ago, a drizzle. The landscape is parched. Enough is enough, Mother Nature. The sky has been grey and light winds prevail.  A very light sprinkle lasted 5 seconds this afternoon. It seems as if Sahara Dust is pretty strong as well. 

Crowds are light after King’s Day.  Not much else to report. Send some rain our way….
