WASHINGTON – New consumer protections for airline passengers established by the U.S. Department of Transportation go into effect today, and will make flying more convenient and hassle-free for air travelers nationwide. The new consumer protections, finalized earlier this year, include requirements that airlines refund baggage fees if bags are lost, increase compensation provided to passengers bumped from oversold flights, and provide passengers greater protections from lengthy tarmac delays.

Boca Bubu; A Local Aruba Site Worth Visiting

“Boca Bubu” A Local Site Worth Visiting

Every Summer vacation, once a week, we go on an outing with the kids to relax and to teach them a little of our culture. Last week Tuesday was no exception. We went to the Historical Museum and afterwards to the beach.

The kids wanted to go to Malmok, where there is a cliff they can jump off and into the water. Upon arrival there we met with Mr. Bubu Marchena working hard with sledgehammer and chisel in the hot sun. He told us he is busy constructing a staircase on the cliff to make it easier to enter and exit the water. This is the second time he is making this staircase, as in 1978 he constructed the original one but with time it eroded and disappeared. Many times he takes his grandchildren to swim there and he promised them to rebuild the staircase.
