Saturday Nite In Iqaluit, Nunavut

An Arctic Char, caught locally was the main course at a house party I attended Saturday.

Friends chat over red and white wine and cocktails, all liquor must be imported to Iqaluit, as there is no liquor stores to help curb the drinking problem.

One of the lucky one’s, “Kimiq” lives a comfortable life indoors, unlike his husky friends who are spending the night in minus 31 degree weather chained up on the frozen tundra.

Drifting snow covered the road out front of the house we were partying in, a tow truck was called and within an hour the taxi was back on the road.

Pix Of The Day – A Hutterite Family

Hutterites are a communal branch of Anabaptists who, like the Amish and Mennonites, trace their roots to the Radical Reformation of the 16th century. Since the death of their founder Jakob Hutter in 1536, the beliefs of the Hutterites, especially living in a community of goods and absolute pacifism, has resulted in hundreds of years of odyssey through many countries. Nearly extinct by the 18th and 19th century, the Hutterites found a new home in North America. Over 125 years their population grew from 400 to around 50,000. The Hutterite community has one of the highest fertility rates.[1]
