    Aruba historians....

    without the aid of "google" or other cyber helpers..............

    remember when?

    Name a hotel or restaurant and say what it was and what it is currently.

    Bushiri............., closed in the early 2000s ..... razed to rubble....and soon to be park/waterfront beach area.

    Outback restaurant.............now the Tropicana Casino and there is a restaurant/bar inside but i cannot remember the name.

    The famous Radisson is now the Hilton.
    (A forum member provided wonderful photos from the Radisson, made in the 60s).

    The former Wyndham became the Westin.
    (I'm not sure if the name and owners changed again.)

    Restaurant is called Double Down, decent sports bar.
    Before it was that, I don't remember the name but it was the first meal we had on the island, I just remember rice and fish and a high bill.
