Quick update

13 Sep

It’s actually quite nice to be in the tundra, where they don’t even have 3G service and the wifi barely works. They only got cell service three years ago! You don’t see people sitting at the table together, on their phones and paying no attention to each other. Kind of like I am right now.
But as we make this quick stop in the first sign of civilization that I’ve seen since the train left last night, I knew I had to at least post a photo of a polar bear!!!

So when I return to Winnipeg, where the Internet works, I’ll tell you all about my terrible 30th birthday, how my family missed the train, and how the Husband was deported!!
