Aruba :)

I was really happy to receive this card from Aruba as a thank-you for my official :) Well, actually I think it's not fair to ask postcrossers from "rare" countries to send you a card just because you sent them an official, because then you receive twice more cards... But I'm not like that :) I just offered a swap, so I also sent 2nd card. I think it's OK then.

Aruba is a 33-kilometre (21 mi)-long island of the Lesser Antilles in the southern Caribbean Sea, 27 km (17 mi) north of the Paraguaná Peninsula, Falcón State, Venezuela. A country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Aruba has no administrative subdivisions. Unlike much of the Caribbean region, Aruba has a dry climate and an arid, cactus-strewn landscape. This climate has helped tourism as visitors to the island can reliably expect warm sunny weather. It has a land area of 193 km2 (75 sq mi) and lies outside the hurricane belt.

I think that being outside the hurricane belt is especially important ;)

i agree with you....ive been asked for the address so they send me a thank-you card, but i find it totally unfair not to send anything in return coz of the reasons you already mentioned...so a swap is something i find very fair in those kind of situations.
well, it has happened the other way around, that i get an official and im asked to send a card in return, but thats a totally different story :)

btw, dont think ive forgotten what i promised you (regarding learning languages and all)...I just wish life didnt interfere, and i was more organized in general :)
