Default Re: HAVING A GREAT (smart & safe) CARNIVAL

Great advice and well presented too.

We were in Aruba only twice (many years ago) during Carnival. One time we arrived on parade day and it took us hours and hours to get from the airport to our hotel. We had no idea it was even Carnival time lol - must have been our "newbie" days. And another time we found out at the last minute that our long-time friend had his own trailer in the parade, and then actually sang at a performance downtown that evening. I never saw him so excited, so nervous (lol) and so proud! He couldn't stop talking about the experience - best of his life. He also said it took him about 3-4 days to recover from the festivities - no big surprise there...

We are never there at Carnival time anymore, but if that ever changes I will have Charles' advice notes in my back pocket.
