Gallo Rojo, Aruba, iPhone video

Stopped at Gallo Rojo in San Nicolaas, Aruba, DWI recently. This is a corner joint that served breakfast and baked goods, not to mention the local papers and cold drinks. Did a little iPhone video just for fun. Here it is:

Tasty ham, egg, and cheese sandwich there. Just what you might need on the way to or from Baby Beach or to start the day after a long night. Enjoy every meal. Bon dia.

Anchor Memorial, Aruba, video

On the southern end of Aruba, DWI, stands a giant ship anchor as a memorial to all the mariners lost at sea. It was updated to include Charles Brouns, Jr. of the eponymous Charlie’s Bar, who was instrumental in having the anchor erected at this spot.

Sadly, Charlie passed away in September of 2004. RIP.

Double Happy, Aruba, video

Aruba is known as “One Happy Island.” There’s also a number of other happily named places on the island, such as this small Chinese operated bar/restaurant/pool hall, known as the “Double Happy.” Here’s a short video:

Friends gather several nights a week to shoot pool, have some drinks, laugh, and enjoy the fun. This place is located at the south end of San Nicolaas. Bon dia.
