Book ‘Rikesa di yobida’ can now be downloaded for free!

The very popular book ‘Rikesa di yobida’, written by authors Gerard van Buurt and Carel de Haseth and illustrated with pictures by these authors and by Leon Pors, was published in 2011 by Fundashon Bon Intenshon on Curaçao. The books were distributed to schools and a limited number was for sale in bookstores. It quickly sold out. Many have been asking about a reprint of the colorful book with short stories on local flora and fauna amply illustrated by photos from the island itself. The authors together with the publisher have now decided to make the book available as a digital document (PDF) that is downloadable to everyone. So here it is:
