    12/9-12/16 Trip Report part 2

    Also ate at Matthews, food was great as always but Happy Hour drinks were watered down.
    Finally found the donkey sanctuary and loved it! The people are so loving and caring of the donkeys. I loved them all but don't think they would like NH this time of year! Can't wait to go back and they will be in their new home by this time next year. Oh yes, as I was talking to some other visitors and asking where they are from, this girl says she lives in my town, 2 minutes from my house! Unbelievable!
    Bugalou was fun as always!
    Saw Millionaire's row up near the lighthouse and all I can say is WOW! I can't believe these people do not have to pay taxes on their houses! Eh, mansions!
    Can't think right now, if I remember anything else I will post it.
    Just love Aruba!

    there may be some real estate tax loopholes, but you can be certain that aruba folks are heavily taxed.

    there are lots of stories that are told by people ......"stories", lots of fiction too
