Healthy Goats

With all the rain we’ve been having in Aruba, the local goats (wild and otherwise) are looking healthy. This one wandered into my back yard for a snack.

At any rate, the goats and sheep and other creatures have been feasting on all the vegetation that springs up after the rains. Aruba is more green than ever, which makes for a striking contrast to the desert-dry island I first visited fifteen years ago.

Be careful driving near the traffic circle at Pos Chikito. There’s a huge herd of goats that crosses the main highway there, sometimes two or three times a day. Once the first one goes, the others follow in crazy pack.

Bon dia from Aruba.
