    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 ...

    ... stringent security checks (actually at Valdez there were none). Luckily I had brought my passport with me & not left it at Sheila & Eddie’s as I toyed with doing. The security officer would not accept my drivers’ licence. I had 2 backpacks due to all the clothes I thought I would need at Barrow &, whilst waiting to board, 2 announcements were made about the fact that only 1 cabin bag + I smaller item could be taken on board – oops mine were too big so ...

    ... up to 50 years. It is also my impression that while there is some intermarriages taking place the various cultures prevent assimilation of a community as a whole. Whether that is good or bad I will leave it to your thoughts.

    My American Guide who has lived here for forty years took me on a 2 1/2 hour tour. Bouncing along on some of the worst streets, it had been raining for three days and they had to wait

    ... and walk into a warehouse/terminal. Leaving the terminal we enter another world.

    Barrow is a town located 330 miles north of the Arctic Circle with all of the modern conveniences. But it is steeped in the traditions of the past. New sport fishing boats share yard space with walrus skin canoes, snowmobiles sit next to dogsleds, caribou legs serve as chew toys for sled dogs. Every house seems to have a drying rack lined with seal ...
