    and I were only planning to stay there long enough to refuel the plane and eat lunch. In the mid-1800’s, a large group of German immigrants transformed Mazatlan from a small fishing village into a thriving seaport. Their legacy lives on in the form of local melodies based on Bavarian folk music, called Banda. Another vestige of the past remains: The Pacifico Brewery established in 1900. Unfortunately, Miguel and I weren’t there long enough to sample the music or the beer. However, it turned out we were in Mazatlan long enough to establish Millennium Airlines before moving on to Puerto Vallarta. We were flying a Cessna 172, a four seat, single engine plane with a high, fixed wing. Back in 1955, Cessna Aircraft Company started making 172’s and more of them have been built than any other aircraft.

Miguel’s 172 was a year 2000 model which meant it was a special edition called the Millennium 172.

    Things get blown out of proportion and turned into bigger deals than they are. The song “I Miss You” by Blink-182 shows that thoughts can keep you up at night and trouble you: “Where are you? And I’m so sorry. I cannot sleep. I cannot dream tonight. I need somebody and always this sick strange darkness comes creeping on, so haunting every time...” This loneliness and creeping darkness or depression, make even the most basic human functions almost impossible.
