    First Of many reports Cindy & Rob

    I will # the posts as to not get myself or others confused..

    happily here, arrived on Jet Blue 12:09
    at luggage thing 12:19
    With Bully and arrived at surf 1:30
    traffic downtown was horrible

    Played "who's on First" with the front desk. Room will be ready at 4, ( we knew this) ok where is it? We don't know.
    3:15 ish, is room ready yet, no 1/2 hour, where is it? We don't know. It was rewind and repeat conversation.
    we are in Compass building which makes Me Happy so we can use the gym downstairs.

    went to Anna Marias last nite. Lovely lovely setting, private home in upscale neighborhood. Huge iron gates and had to be buzzed in. One waiter who there was quite attentive & took care of us. Actually we were very impressed , and if you know me I say it like it is. Had bread basket with fabulous garlic olive oil, fantastic fresh bruschetta, soft melt in your mouth spinach ricotta crepe and a huge piece of melt in your mouth lasagna. We will return.
    Asked to meet Christian but waiter said he couldn't be disturbed as he was sleeping( 8:15 pm). Met his lovely wife Anns Maria in the kitchen working as we were invited in. Told her we would be back. She asked us to say hi to Randi ,Ian and the boys😄

    For the nay Sayers, this really was a lovely evening, service was great, food fantastic . We were very very tired and I was close to cranky, but we were delighted with everything. Randi, you were right! Excellent. Folks, don't try to get there on your own, we would have never found it.

    Shopped Super Foods which I should have mentioned earlier. Spent $150 on stuff; water, cheeses, tonic water, crap.
    love that place!!

    Now, off to gym!

    if there's anything anyone wants us to check give us a holla

    Glad you guys made it safe and sound. When we were there last month the front desk gave us a cell phone and called us when the room was ready. We hung out by the pool until they called. It wasn't too bad, but we were already on the island, so we could plan ahead for that. The meal at Anna Maria's sounded yummy. Thanks for posting, looking forward to sharing the rest of your trip!

    Have already seen Bully three times.....he is such a good friend.

    Anna Maria's was one of the nicest dining experiences I have had in Aruba, a gorgeous private setting with great food and service. Prices were much less than I had expected for such a setting and the menu selection was quite broad for a small restaurant specializing in personal cooking. You have to love Italian, however. But, there are a few other things that looked great; chicken, fish, lamb.

    They asked what ingredients we may or may not have wanted in our lasagna and puttanesca, how great is that!
