    Yes, I saw Day 1....9/22/13. That was the same day we arrived. I meant if anyone has had any problems leaving Aruba since the govt. shutdown this week. The Caribbean Jazz festival folks might also be leaving on Sunday since the festival was only Friday and Saturday evening.

    We flew home yesterday and had no problems. There were hardly any travellers in the airport. Counter to gate less than 30 minutes.

    Glad to hear this news Walt. They are warning everyone here that we should allow 3-4 hrs. to get through US customs now because of the govt. shutdown. We fly home on Sunday, so I will post and let everyone know how we fair, hopefully as smoothly as you. ))

    Wow, I actually have to say a kind word about the US Government LOL

    Got home and went to the mailbox yesterday and her Passport was in the mailbox!

    Sent it off 9/22 and received it back 10/7....not bad and I didn't even pay the extra $60 for expedited service! Way to go National Passport Processing Center!
