    The elusive Djucu

    Most every trip I look for a Djucu nut. In 9 trips I have yet to find one. I comb the beaches and check the souvenier shops but no luck. Every time I come across an article it speaks to how popular they are in Aruba. They are supposed to be lucky, yet the few locals I've asked have never heard of them. I even had a lead once where the article said there was a vendor across from the Radisson sold them so I followed through and grabbed a taxi up to Palm Beach but came back empty handed. I'm not really obsessed but just curious now; has anyone seen one? Here's a link to what they look like

    Thanks Andrea. It's funny all the articles say they are popular but people haven't heard if them. Not much shows up with a goggle search. I told Tom I want it for when we go to the casino.

    Here's mine! I asked someone at the Marriott and they directed me to a jewelry store downtown, not on the main street and off the beaten path. I can't remember the name. I had to ask them at the store about it, there were none on display. It was already polished and mounted and ready for a chain. I love mine!!

    I will be on the lookout and have the kids look too! This is a great idea to keep in my back pocket in case they get bored with long lazy days on the beach
