914. Curaçao’s Chubatu (Billy Goat)

Chubatu roaming the streets Tra’i Seru overlooking Corrieweg.

“Ora kabritu yega Punda, oló di chubatu ta mata.”

When the goat reaches Punda, the stench of billy goat kills.

It’s not the gay coat that makes the gentleman.

[Climbing in social status makes one snobby]
