... 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 passing husky teams who were hell-bent on reaching the rest of the dogs.
At last, we were all reunited and stopped to share individual catastrophes and laugh at each other's misfortune. A wonderful experience, most enjoyable and well worth repeating. You will need to check the shelves in W H Smith's for a new, hot best-seller, "the Sextet and the Huskies", a saga (Saga, get it?) of epic pensioner proportions. More larks in the snow for the old ...
