Aruba

I thought I new the names of all countries but this is a new one to me. Click on the title if you share my ignorance. I only discovered it as this blog registered a visitor from there.

Aruba was big in the news here a few months ago when a high school group from Alabama took a senior trip there and Natalee Hollway came up missing. Her body has never been found. A suspect was Joran Van der Sloot, the son of a Dutch judge. The island has some association to Holland and the Dutch seem to be in powerful positions there. Joran is not in a jail in Peru, I think it is, suspected of killing a woman there.

Van der Sloot is now in jail in Peru, I thik that is the country, as a suspect in the murder of another girl.
