Tropic Air San Pedro - Island Style

It was all glitz and glamour last night at the Grand Opening of the Tropic Air terminal here in San Pedro. The new facility is awesome, and the party was like a "Who's Who" of Belize.

Holiday Hotel provided the bar service, which, I might add was par excellance, and the wonderful food was done by none other than Amy Knox of Wild Mango's. Amy is an award winning chef, and last night's fare leaves no doubt as to why.

Guests were screened at the door, and a band played outside. The decorations rivaled anything I've ever seen here, and lots of other places as well.

The Prime Minister and First Lady of Belize were in attendance

Miss Celi gave a great background on little Johnny and his love of airplanes. While there were several speakers, they kept their speeches quite short, knowing that the party goers were there to see the facility, eat, and drink.....did I mention drink?

Johnny stuck to his word and gave a "painfully short" speech

It was a great party, and everyone worked very hard to make sure that the party was a success.....and it was!
