Departure
Craig and Steph's Adventures in Belize

(Stephanie Smith)
We woke up at around 5:30 am and started packing up all of our stuff. We were careful to separate all of the things we had bought for inclusion in the carry on luggage and to place all of the dirty laundry together in the "do not open" luggage. We went to the dining room for breakfast and had fry jacks stuffed with egg, cheese, and sausage. We went back to our room and finished the last of the packing. Deb picked us up at 10:25, and we got to the airstrip at around 10:30. We took a Tropic Air flight north to the international airport. At the international airport, we checked in, paid our departure tax, and went into some gift shops. There were lots of things to buy in these shops but we really didn't want to carry anything else, and at this point we were really looking forward to getting home.

We boarded the plane at 12:30 for our 1:00 flight. It was a short, uneventful flight to Miami. We had a rather long walk from the gate to customs and we managed to arrive before the large wave of people. We cleared customs and rechecked our luggage very quickly and were on our way. We made record time and therefore ended up with plenty of time to spare waiting for the final leg of the journey home. We had some various food in the airport (pizza, empanadas, hot dog). We had fun people watching as it seemed everywhere we looked was a rather interesting situation unfolding. Everything from the man hanging on two different women that each seemed to get the extra attention when the other wasn't around, to an ice cream vending machine that seemed to confuse everybody that tried to use it. We finally arrived in Boston at 11:15 pm, and Steve picked us up at the airport and drove us home. "We stepped on a pin. The pin bend and the story end."
