    Mosquitos and other biting flying things

    Due to the recent frequent rain, remember to pack your mosquito/bug repellent.

    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? SIDTM

    We pack it even if it hasn't rained for weeks. Pam is a mosquito magnet.

    Walt, does Pam have an O blood type? I heard they like those more and I’m inclined to believe since they always feast on me.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Good morning Andrea, Walt and everyone else, and Merry Christmas,

    Packing a good mosquito repellant is as essential as a good quality sunscreen when going to Aruba. Arid or not, the mosquitos can be ravenous, and they will find you!

    And apparently they do not like me as I have never been bitten in Aruba and I am up and on the beach during dawn. Always bring the spray but never have used it.
