Aruba, Westin Resort and Casino – The Wine Ladies TV
Aruba beckons… although small in size, just 30 km long and 8 km wide, this stunning Caribbean island is big on beauty, with long stretches of white sandy beaches, sensuous sparkling turquoise waters and gentle trade winds that caress and cool the skin while enjoying the rays of the tropical sun. We are returning to this incredible island, after many, many years, as our father’s identical twin started the very first hotel here, called the Manchebo Beach Hotel. Aruba has become an incredibly desirable destination with so much to offer and to celebrate including an annual Food, Wine and Art Festival, held at The Westin Resort and Casino, Aruba www.thewestin.com/Aruba right up our alley!
We look forward to a having an awesome week of a little r&r, some fun and some seriously yummy eating…accompanied by some fine wines of course!All this with our friends, a group of five, fun loving ladies and foodies.

This is the vocab from the local language here, Papiamento, a creole language derived from African languages and either Portuguese or Spanish, with some influences from Amerindian languages, English and Dutch.
