Aruba has always been known as a friendly island. Almost to the point of subservience.
Aruba has tried to keep up with the "Touristic Joness"
Big resorts - Good services - Nice restaurants - and all the rest that the others offer.
And everyonceinawhile - something happens to make me reflect on these efforts.
Not always, just everyonceinawhile.
And when I do, it saddens me profoundly.
