A green building points the way to the blue sky.

Some buildings are green because they are environmentally friendly. This green building is because of its paint. It looks more like a ledge with a trapdoor, but it’s a wall with a window. Looking up shows the deep blue sky with a few clouds here and there.

Curaçao is an island in the southern Caribbean. Willemstad is the colorful capital. The old city center has narrow streets and tall buildings painted bright. Look up almost anywhere and you’ll see something like this. Looking down is colorful as well, but that’s partly because of the vibrant culture of the islands.
