    Us too. We ended up closing our Aruban bank account. The banks here are terrible. It's embarrassing that two of them are divisions of Canadian banks. I spoke to execs at both in Canada and there's an "arms length" problem and general indifference to Caribbean banking.

    Also, a Aruba debit card is now required to pay vehicle registration/tax and to pay taxes unless you are a senior. Cash is no longer accepted. Just went through this in February this year.
    Yup....husband and I both said "a perk of being old is we can pay in cash'. What I really want to know is....did you wear the appropriate clothes and shoes?

    Hahaha..... That's hilarious as I actually WAS refused entry to the main public tax office last month because I was wearing shorts and flip flops. Guy on the door was very apologetic but sent me away all the same !! I had to come back the next day with trousers and shoes. I half considered turning up in a dinner jacket and bow tie, that would have stumped them. Hahahaha...

    For the first time in months I wore shoes instead of either bare feet or flip flops. As for clothes I will leave that to your imagination. The funniest 'clothing moment' I have had here was when I was to meet the Prime Minister. I dressed appropriately in dress shorts and a casual shirt. The receptionist and admin staff almost had heart attacks. I was allowed to enter the sacred halls of governance after I reluctantly agreed to do up the top button of my shirt.
