Aruba Vacation 2009: Historical Museum and President’s Car
This spread showcases a day that we spent in the Capital of Aruba – Oranjestad. We visited the original fort and walked by the Parliamentary building. As we were walking by the Parliamentary building we noticed a car parked with the license plate “1” so we took a picture of it. It was later confirmed to us that this was the President of Aruba’s car! Not something that you get to see or do in the United States!
The Aruban flag I purchased at a tourist shop in Oranjestad. When we travel to other countries I always try to purchase a flag like this as it serves as some great ephemera.
On the top of the left hand page I used a piece of sewing border ribbon to add interest to the page. I glued this down with crafting glue. Be careful that you use a small amount of glue if you do this so that the page doesn’t get too wet and warp.
Ephemera Tip: Get two brochures – when you visit landmarks and historical locations. You will notice on the bottom left that I have a brochure of the Historical Museum of Aruba. It was a double sided brochure so in order to see both sides of it I had to use two brochures.
