If I am looking at this the right way I think he is up where the Divi Phoenix is now. Interesting in any case how that hotel is the only one on that long stretch of beach.

10 Years? ann maybe you should look into books on tape. :wink:


Missed this earlier but well played :lol:

Thanks Miguel - I really enjoy hearing stories of old Aruba.
....and you are right :D

I was 13 years old in 1974 when my cousin got married and said she was going to Aruba for her honeymoon.
I thought it was a funny sounding name for a country at the time and I finally came to visit in 2001.
Fast approaching my 13th visit and can't wait - really does feel like "home away from home" for me.

Let us laugh at the bummers with their wet blankets - I still miss Dan P's (sannic44) insights on the island

Yes, I also miss Dan P (sannic 44) posts. Great guy, outstanding posts about places to go in Aruba and I enjoyed reading his books. Wish he were back on here with his informative posts.

Begs the question where is or what has become of Dan P.

Seems like a novel in the making.

My recollection is Dan related a sweet story of talking to a local youngster about life on the island and got at least one cynical comment questioning the sincerity or motives.
That was probably the last straw for him.
Some posters are clumsy with their attempts at humor and can be misinterpreted as just plain obnoxious.
present company accepted (not a typo) :lol:

To call this a General Q&A About Aruba board is like comedy central. And that's an insult to comedy . All it is , is another social media site for a dozen or so who apparently have too much time on there hands . Pathetic in all honesty. What use to be a vibrant informational site is a thing of the past. Along with Dan you can count hundreds of others who wouldn' t waste the time of day to post on here any longer . SAD :cry:

Kris, Since you don't seem to find anything useful here and continue to make disparaging and nasty remarks perhaps you would be happier if you simply dropped out and went somewhere else.

maybe i'm wrong but i don't remember it like that. i think he got soured by some things that were happening on the island (government stuff) and he became somewhat cynical and his posts at the end kind of reflected that. i did enjoy him very much and his novels before his views of life in aruba changed.
