Venezuelan markets

After the fort, we walked through a local market. Venezuela (the mainland of South America) is only a few miles away, so they come over in their little boats and set up tents and tables to sell little trinkets to tourists. Their skin was very, very dark compared to the Central Americans we'd seen on our last cruise. It felt a little more comfortable hearing Spanish again. We found out that they actually have three languages there: English, Dutch, and a native language called Papiamento that is a mix of English, Dutch, Spanish, and English.
