San Nicolas is a town far from the big beach hotels of Aruba in southern part of the island right next to oil refinery gates. So it's a place where one wouldn't expect to find a famous bar with long history and good food. Charlie's Bar and Restaurant has been there since 1941. It is full of all kinds of small memorabilia, and bartenders have countless stories to tell.
WS #1 shows some of the stuff hanging from the ceiling. WS #2 shows the outside view.

Hello Kari, You had enough of short and grey days in Finland, so you went to have sun in Netherlands. It is always funny for me that these exotic islands are here as Netherlands or France. Nice picture from the bar. I am not interested in all the bottles, but the shrimps look delicious. Yummy...
Haha ha, funny view of all that items hanging from the ceiling.
Kind regrad s Malgo

Very nice and tasty image from the pub. A lot of goodies there, enjoy!

Hello Kari,
Great view of this bar, there is so much to see with all these details and decorations in the background, which include some Dutch details too, like the many small canal houses on the shelves. You included the food very well in the foreground.

Hello, Kari!

I just love shrimp, and it really caught my attention immediately after opening this photo, even with so many interesting details to see in this great composition captured with very good light and sharpness! Very nice job!

ciao Kari
I would like to die there, very well composed shot
cioao, Giacomo

Witaj Kari!
A very interesting bar.
The collection of items is impressive.
I love it.
Good presentation.
Well done.
Nice day.

Hello Kari,

The food looks amazing, my mouth is watering at the sight of it, so well presented in the f/g! It is surprising that there is room for food when you see just how much memorabilia is suspended about the place! Some people have a mania for collecting things, I think this individual must be one of those people!
It's a good interior shot where you have dealt well with the low light.
It might have been an idea to move just a little to your left so that the man's face was not obscured, unless, of course, he decline to be photographed!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
