THE PARROTS
Everywhere you see the flash of colour that might be a parakeet - a "national" bird of Curacao.
 And these fruit and flower hangers made from used tyres!
These ingenious parrots made from used tyres were everywhere (ag)
... AND CHERRIES!
In the arid plateau of Boca Ascension, West Indian cherries growing wild. We ate and thought of Orion, who loved them as a child. (pg)
