Aruba

Make a wish

more than a year ago
Although we didn't write an In Your Pocket guide of the Moon (yet), we imagine that the scruffy dirt road on the North coast of Aruba looks in our imagination pretty much the same as the landscape there. Also we adore the sounds of the wild pounding ocean, hitting day and night on this remote coastline. Particular striking is an old tradition that locals believe that wishes come true if you collect (a minimum of) three rocks, and stack them carefully on top of another. Whatever wish you made for health/wealth/love or anything else you compelled to wish for, will be fulfilled overnight by higher powers. As easy as that and looking at the thousands of stone compilations here, we realise suddenly why everybody is smiling all day on Aruba...
