...get that song out of my head...

I was nine when I went to Aruba with my Mom and best friend (and his mom the travel agent).

Highlights of the trip that I still remember eighteen years later:

- the charred remains of a small plane beside the runway when we were landing

- white, white sand; blue, blue water; red, red foot of my mom after she stepped on a sea urchin

- trying escargots in a restaurant shaped like a giant windmill -- still remember the texture, still haven't tried them again

- deep sea fishing, my friend catching a dolphin (the fish, not the mammal) and being extremely jealous.

I'd love to go back, of course.
