Oranjestad, Aruba

Bondia amigus!

Here is a great card I got from Sascha! Thank you very much! Now I have got the A and the C of the ABC islands! How great is this?

Aruba  is a 33-kilometer-long  island of the Lesser Antilles in the southern Caribbean Sea, located 27 km north of the coast of Venezuela and approximately 130 km east of Guajira Peninsula. Together with Bonaire and Curaçao, it forms a group referred to as the ABC island of the Leeward Antilles, the southern island chain of the Lesser Antilles. Aruba and all the Dutch islands in the Antilles together, are commonly referred to as the Netherland Antilles (or the Dutch Antilles).

Oranjestad  is the capital and largest city of Aruba. Oranjestad is located on the southern coast near the western end of the island country. In the local language, Papiamento, Oranjestad is often referred to simply as “Playa”.

I send love!
