Bonaire Historic Site

We had a wonderful time exploring the entire island.  On the southern end of the island, there are two historic sites with around 8 to 12 of these tiny huts.  One set is painted white and the other is yellow.  These are former huts for the slaves that were used in the Salt Flats way back in history.  Unfortunately, even this beautiful country has a negative mark on their history due to the use of slaves.  I can’t imagine how terrible the working and living conditions were for these poor souls. 

This specific location is also one of the numerous designated scuba diving sites around the island, all marked with a stone painted yellow and the dive site name on it.  As you can see, this dive site is called “white slave”.
