Approaching the End

Well friends, we are quickly approaching our end. It seems like there is no time left to do all of the things that we still want to. This past Sunday at 4am the ABC whaling crew caught a whale! It was an unusually long wait, because the winds had closed the lead for much of the whaling season. At this point, it is very dangerous out on the ice as everything shifts and begins to melt. The whole town was excited to get one at last! After a whale is caught, they have a whale feed for the community. THey cook up a ton of whale and everyone is invited over to eat. We stopped in and got a share of the maktak and organs. Maybe we will save some for you all at home??

Last night we went to a special museum tour. It is in a man's house. He has collected artifacts throughout his life. Some of the artifacts in there are 5,000 years old. He also has a big elk, polar bear, grizzly bear, fox and muskox stuffed in there. He said that Coca-Cola used to use his polar bear. It was a really unique place and is visitable by appointment only. We also tried to find a polar bear (from the safety of a car - don't fear). We would really like to see one before we leave! But we still have one last night...
