Ruins

by Therese August. 22, 2009 2149 views

During our sightseeing trip in Aruba we stopped by the Bushiribana Gold Smelter Ruins. The ruins were right by the water and they gave us a great view. There were many rocks stacked on top of each other around the ruins (we also saw this in other areas around the northern part of Aruba). I learned that this may have started as a custom by the Native Aruban Arawacks. You are supposed to stack the rocks, make a wish, and if the rocks are blown over by the waves, your wish will be granted.

Very cool. Did any of the rocks fall over while you were there? =)
