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

    There are high standards, then there's this.

    Good morning everyone,

    Being part of The Netherlands, Aruba has very high standards in areas like healthcare, education, etc.

    Then there's this. In some of the restaurant washrooms and those in other public places (we're talking the men's side here) it seems like some of the urinals are half way up the wall, at least for 5'6" guys like me. High standards indeed.

    Aruba is wonderful, but not without its quirks. Just another post-Aruba vacation thought.

    Have a great day.

    I am a 4'8" tall woman. Many times I've walked into a bathroom and the only thing I can see in the mirror is the top of my head. Some hotels have high sinks and I have to stand on my tip toes when I brush my teeth. The Global Entry camera only gets my forehead and up. I have to climb the shelves in grocery stores to reach items. I now have a small step ladder I keep in my car at home that I can take into the grocery store if I know I need something from a top shelf. The world is made for tall people.

    At 5'6" as well.... I've always considered those urinals to be an 'upward' challenge !

    Here's a unique urinal. Always trying to recycle. LOL In case you can't figure it out, it's a Beer Keg.

    Glad it is not just my husband who takes pics of urinals (lol) when he used to take pictures with his camera it would never fail when I downloaded them I would find pictures of bathrooms! Some crazy ones as well (Vegas) and I believe a couple from Aruba too!
