Default Slave huts on Bonaire (Dutch Caribbean)

Cute huts with a sad history. They were used to house African slaves in the 1600's. They are just barely big enough for two slaves to lay down in.

Very nice captures saly. I love the perspective of #1.
This forum also provides a history/geography lesson - I have never heard of Bonaire before!

Thanks banksy, Bonaire is part of the island group with it's more famous neighbors Aruba and Curacao. It's a major SCUBA diver destination.

Really like the first saly

In hindsight, many of the things that took place in the past look 'wrong' today, how would history be changed if these events had not taken place..... something we will never know.

Great pictures, saly. Especially like the reed, present in all the pictures - it plays an important role
