Nome, Alaska

From September 10-22, we have been on a ship-based tour of the Russian Far East. The blog posts during that period, showing various Portland scenes, have been scheduled to appear daily while we had no useful internet availability. Now we're in South Korea, with great internet, so I'll be posting a journal of our tour for the next couple of weeks. Words by my wife, Elsa Shapiro; pictures by me.

Day 0: 2016-09-10

We arrived in Nome after meeting our friend Edie at the Anchorage airport after our flight from Portland. We took a taxi to the Aurora Inn: adequate but not luxurious. Had dinner at the Polar Cafe (fried food, etc., but OK) and the next morning had breakfast there.

Some impressions of Nome, wandering around in the evening:
