They have captured that Low Life---Joran!!! Now everyone can travel easy in ALL of the Caribbean!!!
Aruba is an island I have consciously chosen to never consider for our Caribbean travel, all for the events there 5 years ago. Not for lack of safety or for any other reason than one of principle. For a young girl's disappearance to be handled so very badly there, it was my admittedly small way to honor that memory. Certainly my absence and loss of the associated revenue will not make or break the Aruban economy, but today a more sobering thought is that perhaps a second life did not have to be lost in Peru...were it not for a young girl's disappearance to have been handled so very badly...in Aruba.
Natalee Holloway is from our hometown and still her disapperance is constantly in the local news 5 years later. Very sad situtation especially when I have seen her mother around town. I hope justice prevails in this situation as it did not in Aruba. It's so unforunate that two young girls lives were lost. Joran was also charged yesterday in Alabama for wire fraud trying to sell his story of Natalee Holloway death for $250,000. Disgusting. He deserves everything he gets...
On a lighter note, we will have our toes in the sand on our favorite place in T-minus 7 days!
Sunbrat, did you share your feelings to the Tourist Board or anyone or was it a silent boycott? I hope you shared how you felt..otherwise how can positive change happen? I assume you did...but on the other hand boycotting an island because of Dutch laws IMHO does nothing..the people and the local businesses suffer...this spoiled possible psychopath will meet his maker...I can only imagine the torment both parents experience...
