Aruba  is an island country in the southern Caribbean Sea, located about 1,600 kilometres (990 mi) west of the main part of the Lesser Antilles and 29 kilometres (18 mi) north of the coast of Venezuela. It measures 32 kilometres (20 mi) long from its northwestern to its southeastern end and 10 kilometres (6 mi) across at its widest point. Together with Bonaire and Curaçao, Aruba forms a group referred to as the ABC islands. Collectively, Aruba and the other Dutch islands in the Caribbean are often called the Dutch Caribbean.
Aruba is one of the four constituent countries that form the Kingdom of the Netherlands, along with the Netherlands,Curaçao and Sint Maarten. The citizens of these countries all share a single nationality: Dutch. Aruba has no administrative subdivisions, but, for census purposes, is divided into eight regions. Its capital is Oranjestad.

These two beautiful registered airmail covers sent from Oranjested, the capital city of Aruba. The covers posted on Jul 27, 2016 and I received them on August 09, 2016. Aruba Post has a  best philatelic service and a number of thematic stamps also. Thank You Vivian for the perfect postmarking and registered covers. 

This is my first cover I received from Aruba sent by Emily from Oranjested. She is a cover collector, always try to use Commemorative stamps for mailing. She had sent me many covers but later I sent my empty cover to send back with stamps to keep uniformity in my cover collection.
Thank You Emilie for the nice cover!
