Charlie's Bar in Aruba

This famous bar has been a fixture in the south of Aruba since 1938. Charlie was a national hero for work during WWII on the island. His son now owns the bar and it's a family enterprise. The memorabilia is amazing - I've never seen a place this rich in real souvenirs, from all over the world. The travel channel was there filming a segment while we had lunch. Happily we were allowed behind the bar for a picture. That's Richard and Debra from Tango with us. That picture above left was taken in the lady's room. How thoughtful to provide spare bras
