Now for unconfirmed news, so dont pass it on. We heard from several locals that covid positive case tourist are kept on parked cruise ship. Also hotels are only allowed 75%. So when some places say we are at 50% its 50% of 75%, which is full capcity. Thats why it looks so slow. Saw 3 lounges taken at Bucuti and 2 at Manchebo at 8am today. We will try to confirm to these rumors with other friends who live here.

    It's interesting how these rumors even get started. When I was in Aruba in December, the cab driver I was using told me that there is no isolation designated place and that positive guests were being quarantine at their hotel at their expense. I did not mention it on my trip report as it was the first time I heard of this which did not make sense given the low amount of positive cases from tourist at the time.

    The hotel occupancy makes sense now. I was told they were at 60% capacity at Aruba Phoenix in December but it felt like a lot less.

    Another fun day. Ocean, pool, walk and repeat. We did play Bingo at Casa Del Mar at 2pm. We won the big game. A Casa Del Mar luggag tag and pull over. A $10.00 coupon for market, bottle of red wine and a $125.00 cash. Yea! The food truck for lunch was very good. I think its called Aruba Sauce across from Chalet Swiss. We met some locals who confirmed covid patients are not on cruise ship. They all said that the government designated 2 hotels to house them. We also hit Titos Tuesday at ABC for $5 Tito drinks. D.D for breakfast and a trip to Lings for a couple items. Beaching it today, trying to carch the Arubabeat.

    Another fun day in Aruba yesterday. Swim in ocean and pool. Some long beach walks. Visited Paco and the birds at Bucuti. Love talking birds. We won the Big Bingo at ABC yesterday. We are thinking of hitting the Aruba bingo circuit. We ate at
    Ricardos yesterday and all was delicious. Think maid is hitting our vodka in the feeezer again. We cant be drinking all of it ourselves.

    Oh man, Titus Tuesday sounds perfect. We need to stay on that side again soon!
    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.
