Partying in Aruba
Natalee, along with 124 other senior students, arrived on Aruba on Thursday, May 26, 2005, which signaledÂ the start of the five-day long unofficial graduation trip for the graduates of Mountain Brook High School.
Along with the students came seven chaperones who were supposed to keep tabs on everyone and make sure everything was alright. However, with a ratio of roughly 17:1, the chaperones definitely had their work cut out for them.
It’s Time To Party
Once they were done settling in, Natalee and her classmates wasted no time and soon enough, wild parties with underage drinking took place almost every day. So did some “room switching” between the male and female senior students. Natalee, in particular, seemed to be having the time of her life, drinking every day and according to the hotel, even starting her mornings with a couple of cocktails.
