That would be great like the safes in your room...But the bike lock sounds like a great idea for the next trip. Have been lucky with nothing getting taken but you never know who is lurking around. But yeah I am surprised that nobody nearby saw anything its not like the palapas are 200 ft away from each other..I think I would ask what they were doing if I saw the same people at the chairs all day???? and these were not them Oh well just shows you have to beware no matter where you are.
I lost one camera when someone broke into my jeep 5 years ago and now I download all the pics everynight so I at least have all the pics if something should happen. Sorry to hear of that. Kent
The situation is only going to worsen as tourism drops off from an ailing US economy. The number of robberies and domestics in the area I live has increased dramatically.
me thinks the worst of the US economic woes are over.
already we see signs of growth, although unemployment is so very high.
in aruba, most everyone that wants to work currently work!
like anywhere there are a few bad apples that try their hardest to cause rot.
when there is crime in aruba, typically it is not arubans.
it is outsiders......usa folks, other caribbean folks, south americans, eurpoeans.....in most cases of robberies etc....it is not arubans.
i would like to be able to find some type of charting on crime and the nationalities.
If you believe the US government ...
"WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Federal Reserve is optimistic that a robust recovery is on the way, but the minutes of its June meeting reveal that some of its policymakers think the economy is entering an era of prolonged higher unemployment."
Imo, new jobs are always the last thing to signal the end of a recession.
From what I was told by a manager, the Tamarijn was sold out the last two weeks on June and all of July. Not bad in a recesssion.
I certainly know how your feel!! We also had a camera stolen by the pool at the Marriott resort. It was the last day of our two week trip. We had some great memories on that camera!! It is a reall bummer.
The thing is - it was probably another tourist which is why other people didn't notice. Probably thought they were with you.
We bought a compact underwater digital camera from Pentax. Takes great pics and video too. Retails for around $300. I keep it in my swim trunk velcro pocket when swimming/snorkeling.
