    Only in Aruba #2

    Well, another funny minute. I needed to have a small job done at the Villa. I found the appropriate trades person and we spoke and agreed on things. Late in the afternoon we received a call from these folks. Although we had given them our address, they were lost ( and these are locals!!!)

    Here is the exact quote from the person coming to do the work....." I don't know where you live but I will be there in 10 minutes" We laughed. How can anyone commit to be at a location they don't know within 10 mins??? Only in Aruba.

    PS....They arrived about 30 mins later and only after a detailed cell phone call and giving them street by street instructions.

    In the pool.

    That always stuns me ... taxi drivers that don't know where Gold Coast is... um, okay.

    That being said, we always tell people: "You're never more than ten minutes away in Aruba." Maybe the locals are following that mantra now too?!?
