    ___19 Miles Off The Coast of Venezuela___

    Since I'm getting ready to do another trip, I figured I should post this one first.

    Aruba is a tiny island. Only 20 miles long and 6 miles across at its widest point,
    it's slightly larger than Washington, D.C. It's the westernmost of the Dutch ABC
    islands Aruba, Bonaire, and CuraƧao.

    Aruba is dry and sunny with constant cooling trade winds and an average year-round
    temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit or 27 degrees Celsius.

    The southern, leeward side of the island is famous for its long stretches of powdery
    white sand beach, while the northern coast features a rugged and dramatic
    landscape and secluded coves ideal for swimming.

    Let the tour begin....


    Flying in...one of the hurricanes slightly visible way off in the distance.

    This picture doesn't really do it any justice. These sand bars were out in the middle
    oh nowhere, surrounded by nothing but the Carribbean Sea.

    one of the hotels had its own private island. this boat would drive in through a tunnel and take you to it.

    This was our trusty rental. The biggest, baddest 4x4 on the island. Ok, maybe not the biggest, but I drove this little beast over some really rough terrain.

    Goddamn duder, awesome AWESOME images there. That hotel with the island (was it a Sonesta?) was precisely where I stayed when I went there (I was 16). I had frozen drinks and cuban cigars all day in it, while I threw things at iguanas and watched all the topless honeymooning brides. Then I hooked up with a cute Dutch girl who ended up being way too young for anybody's good. Nice memories, I can tell you had a great time!

    and in closing...a three or four shot stitch of the North Western coast. If it was to continue, the light house would be a couple pics to the right.

    the 'white man's grafitti' is great!

    I love it when people used serifs and scripts!

    mamerro, ya know I don't really remember much about that hotel, except for the fact that it had its own island and that boat.

    that cave was full of serif and script graffiti.

    unfortunately the battery was starting to die so I couldn't shoot any more.
