7-22-2017 Heading Stateside

We have some projects to work on, things to take care of, and people to visit, so we decided to return to the US for a bit.

The view from the "hopper" plane from Dangriga to Belize City is wonderful.

It's kind of hard to tell from the photo, but on our approach to the Belize City airport the pilot made a really hard right turn to
circle around - like nothing we had ever experienced before. If you look closely at the top right corner of the empty co-pilot
seat you can see the horizon extending up at almost a 45 degree angle. That's because WE were at that 45 degree angle.

The view out Cara's window during that hard turn.

The flight from Belize City to Houston had a little turbulence because of a storm, but it was uneventful.

We had a several hour layover in Houston, which gave us plenty of time to go through customs and let the storms pass.
However, we also had an hour delay while we waited for our flight attendants to arrive.

At the gate our seats were suddenly changed, which was actually a bonus for us. Our seats, which were directly behind the
Business Class seats, had extra leg room - woohoo!

We arrived in Indianapolis just fine, but then we had to sit on the tarmac for an hour because they had closed the baggage
ramps due to rain. Don't know why we still couldn't have gone to the gate and debarked, but during that hour wait on the
tarmac we couldn't get up to use the bathroom, and they couldn't serve us any drinks or snacks. Once we finally did get off
the plane we still had another hour wait to finally get our bags - they kept closing the baggage ramps due to rain. So, it was
about 3 am before we got to our final destination.
