Slave huts on Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles

Bonaire Slave Huts...These are the "red" slave huts as opposed to the white ones.
Before it was a scuba destination, Bonaire's main industry was the production of sea salt. In the days of slavery, men and women were forced to work as saltrakers in the salt evaporation pans of Bonaire's south shore. Slaves were housed in these small huts, now maintained by the local parks department.

Salt works on Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles

Much of Bonaire's Southern half has been made into a giant system of ponds and pools which take seawater and allow incrimental evaporation of the water until the only remaining product is sea salt. Bonaire's solar salt works produces 400,000 tons of industrial grade salt per year primarily using wind to operate windmill-driven pumps and gates and the sun to evaporate the collected seawater.

Philipsburg, St Maarten - operator not known: At the A C Wathey Cruise Terminal

Fast Concept Car "Starter" C--D

Another Fast Concept Car, this time running without a St Maarten registration plate. St Maarten has three registration series for buses: BUS = a service or stage bus, T = a tourist bus and G = a "group" bus, whatever that means.




Philipsburg, St Maarten - operator not known: T-29 at the A C Wathey Cruise Terminal

Fast Concept Car "Starter" C--D

Another new one on me. Despite having "Fast Concept Car" on the front in English, FAST is an acronym for a French company that was once an operator but morphed into a bodybuilder by taking over existing manufacturer Carrier Carrosserie. The Starter is an integral vehicle incorporating an MAN engine, axles and other mechanical parts.
