    I beheld a fine specimen of the period’s Dutch architecture as I visited Stadthuys, built as an official residence for the Dutch Governor with his officers in 1960. The 400 years old relics and traditional bridal costumes preserved in the Ethnography Museum and the History Museum were a real pleasure to look at.
