      A good hotel

      This is a good hotel. It would be very convenient as long as you play by their rules like "No shoes beyond the lobby" (They will provide footwaer to use beyond this point.) and "Clean the cups in your room before you check out".

      ... and we were on our way. Arriving at Barrow was like stepping into another world. As we landed, we saw ice floating in the Arctic Ocean and got our first view of the town that is known as the town on top of the world. Barrow is the furtherest Northern town in America. Satellite dishes point down instead of up. There are no paved roads because of the permafrost. When you stand and look out over the snow covered Arctic Ocean, it ...

      ... down the road and nothing is paved here. I guess the permafrost can really affect the pavement, so they don't pave and you are constantly walking in slush/sand. It is may now, so there is 24 hours of daylight, but it still snows here. The last few cities in Alaska that I went to were very mountainous and scenic, but Barrow is a desert. It sounds strange calling a desert in a place north of the Arctic ...

      I am drafting this whilst on the way to Prudhoe, the plane is almost full with all the window seats taken. The majority of passengers are men & many of them are asleep or have their eyes closed so are not interested in the view whereas I am straining my neck to see outside. Admittedly as soon as we took off we were in cloud but now, 15 ...

      ... The streets are unpaved due to the damage wreaked by perma frost. We walk the 1/2 mile to the Top of the World Inn, snapping pictures like the tourists we are.

      It is too early to check in, so we drop our bags and head out for lunch. There are three restaurants within a pitch shot of the hotel, one Mexican, one Chinese and one Japanese. We go to Sam and Lee's for Chinese. The food is good and we discover that the place gets ...
