We just learned about the country of Turks and Caicos Islands

Let's learn a little about the country of Curaçao!

This country is in the Caribbean Sea, just north of South America.
It is about 444 square kilometers, and about 155,000 people live there.
The people in this country speak either Dutch, Papiamentu, or English.
Papiamentu is a language made up of a mixture of Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch.
The country is a land owned by the Netherlands, and it is made up of one main island and then a smaller one called Klein Curaçao.

The flag of Curaçao is blue with a yellow stripe and two white stars.
The blue is for the sea nand the sky, the yellow is for the sun, and the stars are for the two islands that make up this country.

One of the bridges in this country is called Queen Emma Bridge. It is a movable bridge called a swing bridge.
