Papiamento - 20 Years as an Official Language
Post Aruba releases its “Papiamento” emission commemorating its 20 years status as official language on Aruba. Papiamento is a language spoken in the Dutch Caribbean. It is the most widely spoken language on the Caribbean ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao). It sounds a bit like Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and African Creole, but the combination of those languages created one of the most intriguing idioms in the world.
