Bonaire Architecture

There seems to be either a glut of ochre paint here on Bonaire or some official mandate for public building colors, because this gold color is EVERYWHERE.

When we were looking for the Customs building the first day we arrived, someone said, "It's the gold building with the red roof". Hmmm, they're ALL gold with red roofs!
After wandering around the island we realized that there are some buildings painted different colors, like blue, green, pink, and orange.
In fact we saw this little "Fixer Upper" and thought we could buy it and live here. You can bet we won't paint it gold; maybe Tiffany Blue or Aqua?
