It is important to keep up appearrances . In Curacao the front is what counts. And that is ok. You can look a million dollar, but live in a shack. You drive a super car, but are late with tuition fees. You throw a birthday party with an eleborate theme
and have to payback the loan untill next birthday. At least you had a good time...
How is it possible to do this make belief? We, Dutch, are used to invite people over to our homes. Here you meet in public space, like the beach or the snek, small snack
place. So it is much more easy to do the appearance thing. Good or bad? We don't know. We think simple is cool. To us the idea that you cannot afford your own identity is a little daunting.
