While I would love to go to Aruba and enjoy the nice sunny beaches, I can not get over the handling of the "Natalie Holloway" case by the Aruban authorities. Sorry, Aruba lovers, but there must be justice first.
We walked the streets at night looking for restaurants and felt safe. I can understand back then how it must have felt. I think now it's safe. Most places accept the American dollar and you can drink the water. We really enjoyed it.
