    Nov 11-Dec17

    We arrived yesterday. What a breeze. No problems at all at customs, just walked through. We arrived at 2:00, got our luggage, duty free, got the car, went food shopping and was in our house by 3:30. No cruise ships so drove through downtown cause Rob has never been here. What a difference it makes with no cruise ship. Last night went to Casa Tua, then Hyatt (won a whopping $34) and came home. I was able to get my second diamond Yurman band at Gandelman’s (bought one last year and wanted to stack them).

    Today, Arashi. My stepdaughter and her fiancé are with us til Saturday. I just can not believe how easy the airport was. Of course TSA opened our bag. We met people waiting for luggage and the guy said it was his second time there. He couldn’t believe how nice the Aruban people are, lol. But we already knew that, lol.

    It is nice to hear that it was easy to get through town. I'm sure the new highway in addition to no ships helps. Thanks for reporting.

    Today after our morning walk from Ritz to Divi we saw the walking path with the black posts. I don’t know where i read it but people were saying oh it doesn’t look good. I think the black posts look great, very elegant looking and making that walking path extremely safe. Also we didn’t notice all the “new crowding” at the hotels with the palapas. It looks the same.

    we were on Arashi today and that also wasn’t that crowded and there were cruise ships supposedly in port. I am not complaining. Tonight we are going to Terrazza for dinner and then over to Glitz. And Peg, the ring i bought at the David Yurman site with tax would have ended up costing me close to $500 more. They give you that discount on gold and no tax at Gandelman. I already have one band so this is the exact one I am getting.

    anyway, most of our days will be repeats. Walk, beach, drinks, dinner, gambling or staying home. I really love this place. People say Disney is the happiest place on earth. They obviously have not been to Aruba.....
