    Oil refinery in Aruba

    A little of topic but not much- I was looking at google earth and I was shocked at how big the oil refinery is with all of the tanks. I am guessing the area is pretty secure and you can't wander around, correct? Have any of you been there? It looks like a deserted area.

    not quite deserted.
    it is very secure re: public access .
    gates and much security.

    paul and i had a tour a number of years ago.
    a friend was an engineer there with valero and was kind enough to give us a tour of a good portion of the area.
    it was fascinating.
