... well organised and offered a genuine insight into the Sami culture. The average Lap doesn't wear the "cute" clothing anymore and seems to have adopted the capitalist culture of where can I earn the most money for the least demanding work. They certainly don't work in the hotels and do menial jobs. It must have been a hard life in the old days being a reindeer herder. The spirit seems to have died though.

... the sum total of her puny weight on the brake was no match for the power and enthusiasm of the huskies. After a dragging interlude a skidoo intercepted the dramatic bunch and the Keystone Cops interlude came to an end. G trudged back along the trail while S heaved and rocked with laughter at the incident.
After a brief half-way turn around pit stop, it was back along the trail for another exhilarating ride home. B and H were bringing up the rear ...
