Oranjestad is full of tropical color and Dutch whimsy.

Just a warning to watch for crazy drivers.

Pretty in Pink

We should have eaten here.

Palm Trees are not native to Aruba, but plastic will do.

This home was for sale.  I like the entry.

Beautifully restored home from the 1920s...

This was the biggest church in town.

Time for shopping.

Lots of flowering trees.

Legos, anyone?

See what I mean by Dutch Whimsy?  I think I've coined a new architectural term.

This tour bus offers everything but air conditioning.

Sidewalk Gardens

Everything was in English.

We found this as we detoured through a neighborhood.

Dutch Whimsy is a great term. I wish our chapel was yellow and had a front porch too.

That is a colorful place. America is kinda boring in that aspect.

Cute little town. They seem like a lively bunch.
