I have been back in the arctic for about half a day now. I arrived just in time to catch the end of the July 4th games. That’s what folks do here on accounta fireworks just aren’t that interesting this time of year. So, here they hold about a week of games. I missed the Umiaq (skin boat) race, but I caught some of the tug-of-war games just before the close of events.
After a week of record heat in Vegas, the differences are quite striking. I like to get out from time to time, but I must say it’s good to be home.
