    Dutch people are the tallest in the world on average. The men average around 6'0. However, Aruba is not a part of the Netherlands, but of the kingdom of the Netherlands. And while there are definitely some standards copied from the Dutch, urinals aren't one of them. It was probably just oversight.

    We get minimal European tourists. Not even 10% of total last time I checked.

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

    Good morning Arawak,

    My apologies for the error in saying that Aruba is part of The Netherlands and not part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands. Sorry about that.

    Canada is an independent member of the British Commonwealth; many in Britain still think we are a colony, so I understand the importance to Arubans of getting the terminology right.

    Regards,


    Glenn

    No worries Glenn! It was more to illustrate how few Europeans we get in comparison to North Americans. If anything, most places tend to be tailored towards you guys
