Walt said "The head bellman came over to me and asked if we were checking in and I said no, we are leaving. He put his arm around my shoulder as we walked into the lobby and thanked me graciously for staying with them and then walked back to the car and shook Pam’s hand and wished her a safe flight. That is hospitality and the Aruban spirit at its finest."
It's so true, Holiday Inn bellman have always been so nice to us, even when we have just been passing through to get a taxi or take a short cut to or from the Surf club. I don't know of its actually a short cut, but the walk on the beach feels nicer.
Walt, we agree on American first class too. It will be hard to go back to economy after our last trip and your description.

Thanks for taking us all along your fun filled trip Walt Sounds like you really struck it lucky with no crowds and your departure day at airport, that must have been such a weird sight with no lines at all!
