    San Nic 44 aka Dan Putowski

    Does anyone know if Dan still visits Aruba (does he still have his place in Savenetta?)

    He has not posted in a long time AND his FB page has no mention of Aruba lately (except a condolence posting about a death of an Aruban friend)
    Happy Holidays to you and yours!

    I asked about him when we were in Charlie's Bar last Feb. The bartender told us that he sold his place in San Nic. and was concentrating on writing screenplays back home. I see him on fb every now and then. I sure miss his Aruba updates, especially "Doing Time with Dan."

    That is so funny you posted this, I was just thinking about him last week wondering why he doesn't post anymore. Loved his videos.

    Currently re-reading "An Island Away" for the 3rd time this year. I guess the screen writing is takeing up a lot of his time. Hopefully he should be back on the island and making new "Doing Time With Dan" videos.

    MIA Dan, We miss your posts. Hope you are enjoying life. You sure gave us some great insight into the local bars and restaurants of Aruba. We met you here and there over the years and you were always a great Aruba Ambassador.
    Thanks so much,
    Sean and Susan

    I know what you mean, he always provided some additional information that only someone who spent a lot of time on the island( what many of us hope to do someday real soon) than the average visitor would not know. I used one of his videos to give directions to my relatives while they were on Aruba via What's App. My aunt was surprised at how I knew how to find this one particular restaurant as I had never been there. I'm sure once the screenplay is done he will be back, really hoping for him to write another novel set on Aruba.

    Dan had posted last week about the passing of Frankie, from Island Away fame. Sad day for San nicholas. Does this qualify for a RIP thread.
