This is an old gold mining / processing facility.
This is the view from the rock formation.
Nice tour bus, eh?
It says it all, right?
I climbed this rock formation, all 50 feet of it. I think that this may well be the highest point on the island. Not only is it One Happy Island, it’s one flat one as well.
Arub a also had some really nice beaches. However, many of them were private. Most islands we visited decreed all beaches public. Most islands we visited were also poor.
Aruba did have a plethora of swank hotels that were obviously somewhat pricey. The Aruban economy seemed to be booming.
Another Aruba landmark was the lighthouse. Aruba tours are a little short on excitement.
The tour guide brought us to see one of Aruba’s natural wonders – the Natural Bridge. Only problem was that it collapsed several years ago. No problem, man. Just keep it on the tour.
Each island seemed to have their own brand of beer, almost all of them pilsners.
