Had a little bit of a cross-Arctic tour this past week, went to Iqaluit for meetings, with stops in Igloolik, Hall Beach, Kugaaruk and Cape Dorset.
Some things that happened in Iqaluit:
I lost my good hat. (it was blue and had braids. I think it fell out of my pocket when I wasn't wearing it.)
I ate a lot of ginger beef. (and chicken wings. it was a meat-fest. I also had steak and roast beef. that's what happens when you hang out with a whole bunch of guys.)
I was assessed a fine at the regimental dinner, for trying to pay for the ticket with less than the full amount. (apparently the fines are a tradition. my boss got fined for falling asleep in a meeting.)
Went to the movies, saw "Get Low" and although the plot was a bit corny, the dialogue was amazing and it was very visually stunning. (plus I like Bill Murray.)
