View from above – Aruba
Thought for the day…”Action may not bring happiness but there is no happiness without action”.
“You cannot live a positive life with a negative mind”.
Off to the Caribbean for the photo today and the island of Aruba, seen here from above. Aruba is about 30km off the coast of Venezuela, and is one of the group of islands known as the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao). About 103 000 people live on this small island, which is only 32km long and about 10km wide. It is dry and arid (there are no rivers), and also very flat, with a year round average temperature of 27 degrees. Tourism is the number one industry here, with oil refining and offshore banking also important. About 1.5 million tourists a year visit, including many arrivals by cruise ships in the capital, Orangestad. The beaches were very quiet when this early morning photo was taken…..
and another photo from the archives…..a girl in rural Laos.
