This is the second time this year we have visited this park just to see the iguanas. There are quite a few iguanas in the park and they are not phased about people taking their photos. The park is also kept in a clean condition.

There is a statue of Queen Wilhelmina here. She was Queen of the Netherlands from 1890 to 1948. The people of Aruba respected her according to the inscription on the statue base.

We were visiting in November and we were able to witness the Inauguration of the new Prime Minister and the parliament. While this might not impress some it is always very neat to see something new especially when its a different country.

Mambo Beach? Sambil Mall Queen Emma Bridge Wilhelmina Park Floating Market Chobolobo...More

Well, Bonaire has been having it's share of tropical weather. Dean brought in some huge surf, heavy winds and rain.
