Mary Gonzalez and her aunt (Olga Tzib) waiting to board the Tropic Air flight to San Pedro, Municipal Airport, 1987

Olga was the mother of Jerry Tzib of Richie's Supermarket fame (he sold the store and lives in Belmopan now)

I donít think Iíll ever lose that frisson of excitement when I board a plane, heading off to parts either familiar or unknown. My first visit to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye came in 1987, when my father splurged on a flight for me to arrive in style.

That stomach-churning feeling at the first elevation, followed by the eerie whooshing in my ears soon disappeared, as I opened my eyes and stared in wonder at the vistas below. The kind pilot let me sit next to him, so I had the best vantage point. I got to see the specks of mangroves and tiny islets dotting the blues and greens of the water. Clouds floated by and for a 6-year old, nothing was as special as that magical ride to my new home.
