Land Sharks, Urban Exploring and an absolute rule!!!


Hello interweb, Ive had an uncomfortable few days of thought and reflection.
It happens occasionally but I soon snap out of it.
I want today to bring you some images that I took whilst in Aruba that you will not find in any of the brochures.
That is mainly because they do not promote the Casino’s which the whole island seems to be geared towards. Even the local people call them the “Land Sharks”.
Whilst there I decided to do a spot of urban exploring as it is one of my past times and as I have got older it has got a bit easier. I can walk onto most places these days that are fenced off and have signs saying no trespassing with ease and no bother from anybody. At 42 wearing a hard hat, boots a big yellow coat and holding a professional camera nobody thinks I'm a trespasser.  (not that I did that in Aruba but you know what I mean)
Away from the resorts and the beaches there is another side to the Happy island, it is not so happy.
When I was exploring I felt a nervous tension and an underlying fear about the place that I could not put my finger on. After speaking with a couple of locals, despite the language problem, most of the problems appear to boil down to politics. Hmmm, a bit like home then but without the sunshine.























I would now bid you farewell for today interweb but will leave you with this thought.
The Universe is very, very big, and  it has some extremely strict rules.
Rule number one: Nothing lasts forever.
Not you or your family or your house or your planet or the sun.
 It is an absolute rule.
 Therefore when someone says that their love will never die, it means that their love is not real, for everything that is real dies.
I told you id been thinking again, normal service will resume in due coarse.
Peace out y'all, THE BAGSTAXXX
