Just another Saturday night by The Dive Bus ... (Or: Heads up: it's almost Carnival time in Curacao!)

Get your dancin' shoes on if you're heading to Curacao any time soon, so you're ready to join in any impromptu street parties and dancin' (Jump Ins (Ups) ) that may run into you unexpectedly...

Like this one, right on The Dive Bus doorstep last Saturday evening, the official opening of Curacao Carnival Season 2014. The guests at Sunscape Resort just across the road must have been a little surprised and a lot thrilled at their front row seats to this fun event. 

Enjoy - we certainly did!
