Yes, the hometown of my favorite American politician, Sarah Palin. I’m waiting at the much recommended Pandemonium bookstore meet my good friend Margaret for lunch, and have my first access to wi-fi. We flew out of the Alaska range yesterday afternoon which was surprisingly beautiful against the odds of a grim forecast. Obviously, I’ve got lots of updates for the blog but the quick summary from the past few weeks includes a few crazy Serbians, swimming, and way too many games of euchre. Look for more updates in the next few days- I’ll be out of touch again starting June 16.
