Caribbean (June 9-21, 2006)
Next stop - Aruba. It was another brilliant sunny day and we made our way to the Jolly Pirates ship for a snorkelling and swing tour. I saw quite a few varieties of fish and some schools of squid on one of our snorkeling stops.
Lots of people tried jumping from the swing, including me!
Aruba is quite flat and arid, with low desert shrubs. It is an autonomous Dutch territory and Dutch is the official language, but everyone we met spoke English. Here's a pic of Oranjestad, the capital on the west coast, taken from the ship.
