Life without Food is just--a Fight.
Food is the answer to all Prayers. If you're tired, irritable, feeling sad, unsure, have mixed feels, need inspiration, want to make amends....whatever the issue is.

That's why during my time spent here in Aruba I decided to go on a Culinary tour: Visiting at least 10 places that are "worth writing home about". Aruba is known for being One Happy Island-- it's true, generally speaking, everyone here is kind, generous, and gracious in their offerings. You could stop someone dead in their tracks on their way to work and ask for directions and without any sense of haste, they'll tell you and even show you. Customer Service and Hospitality I'd say begins at an 8 out of 10.
