Rincón, Bonaire, Caribbean Netherlands

Focus on Rincón Cemetery:  The phrase Drumi Dushi is found all over Rincón Cemetery. If you were traveling in the ABC Islands, you would see dushi quite a bit. In fact, it is used as a branding agent, to signal that you're in a sweet place like no other. In fact, it means 'sweet.' So what do you think drumi means? Sleep. On Bonaire's tombstones, look for 'sweet sleep.' Now you should be asking yourself this question:  What language is that? [2017]
