Oh boy Elaine-----we'll have fun---reminds me of last year when we met those lovely residents who volunteered to get in the car and take us to see Ommi. Wherever we go we'll have to leave a half hour early so we can get lost and found.

Hi Sherry,
It is 1 year to 18 mos. Also the projected cost is 100 million Florin. They will also re-hab 10 other neighborhoods on the Island including San Nicholas. There is also talk of Parking meters downtown but no word on where or how much they will charge. As far as the Aruban fire, nothing else has been printed.

Bye the way, the goverment has asked all stores to help in freshning up their frontage and to keep the area clean. My 1 question is where are they going to put the chollers ? I havent seen anything to address that issue, although with this kind of investment, I'm sure they have a plan.
