Plus a huge package containing a new TW set.
After ashort 20 minute wait in the departure hall, we all were taken by a minivan to the waiting Islander of Windward Express, whose staff had seenafter all the transfer procedures including loading all the baggagefrom Switzerland as well as Willi’s local food packages and TV, intothe waiting plane. As soon as we were all buckled up, the pilot startedthe engines and he got permission for take off withing seconds. Off wewere over the beaches of St. Martin into the azure sky, with St. Barthsshowing to the right, with many luxurious yachts and sail boats in thewaters nearby.
