    Proposal For New Requirements for Citizenship on Aruba and other Dutch Islands

    Came across this article this morning about the requirements for naturalization for Aruba, Curacao and St. Martin.

    Interesting. I find there is a big difference in being able to communicate/understand the Dutch language compared with Spanish and Papiamento. When I play poker, the people from Aruba are often somewhat surprised I can understand the general gist of their conversations. I have been asked multiple times if I speak Papiamento, because I am able to make a comment about a hand two or more people were discussing in Papiamento. I respond in English of course because I can't really speak it but could communicate in Spanish if needed (limited speaking but I understand reasonably well) Then the jokes come - Jay you are here so often, you should be able to speak it by now...most of the local players know me now, and I really enjoy playing with them, some are now friends. The people Aruba are great!
    When two Dutch citizen speak, I have no clue what they are talking about.
