Is it really progress?

Ms Helen Petries’ letter to the editor is quite charming.

Cayman of yesteryear held such a warm spot in our hearts as well.

Our first visit to Grand Cayman was in 1977 and we too have cherished memories of places now long gone and people also long gone.

We will always remember the friendship of Ethel Smith and her family, the delightful Caymanians that went out of their way to help me and my family enjoy the islands.

Much has changed on Cayman (no kidding) and it is unfortunate that prices have escalated to a point where this lady cannot visit her special island as well.

We call it progress and growth. I wonder if this is true.
